Addicted To The Sunshine
Get up off your towel and respect the sunshine and the environment that we all love!
Why we wrote this song
As Australians we love to boast about our pristine beaches, vast wildernesses and unique native animals. The beaches are our daybeds, the bush is where we venture, and crocs are living in our bathtubs!
We’re addicted to our lifestyle because we’ve got it good but even though we appreciate what we’ve got, the contradiction lies in our inability to protect our home – “If I sit on my ass will the world still go round?”.
Every Australian must realise that many of our actions come at an environmental cost but it isn’t hard to avoid or offset these actions. Too many of us (especially our leaders) are taking without giving back – “give a little if you’re gonna take”.
About us as artists
Lime Cordiale’s infectious performances and genuine, generous interactions with their fans has made them one of Australia’s buzziest acts over the past couple of years. It’s a fact that was reflected in the Triple J Hottest 100 poll in 2019 when Lime Cordiale was the only act to have four songs under 40 – a feat that not even Billie Eilish could pull off.
Eight years, three EPs and one album later and the boys have nearly 100,000 followers on Instagram and are playing to wildly enthusiastic crowds across Australia and overseas.
The future of Lime Cordiale will see the band move their environmental goals to a grand scale. They hope to pave the way for other acts, making it easier to make green decisions when it comes to touring, merchandise and supporting environmental organisations.
They have played multiple fundraiser shows for Sea Shepherd, Living Ocean and other ocean-protecting charities. Since 2020, they’ve owned 100 acres of land on the mid-North Coast and Regenerative Farming has become a new source of optimism.
