Lime Garden have released ‘I Want to Be You’, the latest single from their upcoming debut album One More Thing – out 16 February. It follows previous entries ‘Love Song’ and ‘Nepotism (baby)’. Check it out below.
“‘I Want To Be You’ was inspired by a very specific memory I have as a 14 year old at my first gig looking at the band playing and thinking, ‘do I Want to be you or be with you, or do I want both?'” the band’s Chloe Howard said in a statement. “This feeling has continued to raise its head on many occasions in my life, and it’s become quite an obsessive process at times. Growing up with social media and the constant ability to follow your idols, with access into ‘their world’, has fuelled this in an unhealthy way.”
“I’m the type of person who can get very deep into something, but now I try to channel that into something more constructive and real, like music and art,” she added. “Recording this song was an attempt to emulate the feeling of true obsession through sound.”
