QAnon believers are not going to like the lyrics of this song. Though it will be hard for them to withstand the infectious groove, influenced by the sound of the second Summer of Love. Think Happy Mondays, Primal Scream or Stone Roses. Discover ‘Lemon’ with ‘How Can You Rhyme That Shit?’ the December 29th in Formula Indie
“This song is much more of a protest song than our previous releases” says Ralf Hesen, who wrote the song. “It’s born out of frustration. I just don’t understand how people can believe human beings are capable of hiding such a weird worldwide scheme. The lyrics say it all: I think it’s vanity, I don’t see us pull that off”.
Though conspiracy believers may not like the lyrics of the song, it will be hard for them to withstand its infectious groove that is heavily influenced by the sound of the 2nd Summer of Love, when bands like Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, The Charlatans, The Farm and Stone Roses mixed Sixties pop with some psychedelic influences and a load of dance influences. Lemon titles their interpretation of this sound Nedchester (referring to the Madchester sound: Ned stands for The Netherlands, in Dutch: Nederland). Other bands who take inspiration from Madchester are The Kooks, Kasabian, Cut Copy, Jagwar Ma and Chk Chk Chk.
Some quotes from reviews of previous releases: It’s all Indie > “Lemon could quite be one of the biggest hidden gems within the kingdom of The Netherlands”, Independent Music Reviews > “a brilliant danceable beat that carries the listener to another world”. Talk About Pop Music >: “It’s a great Summer festival anthem”, MangoWave > “John and Yoko sang ‘We all shine on’, Lemon’s psychedelic Indie Funk hymn is a worthy successor”
