Lemonade formed in San Francisco, initially crafting visceral, psychedelic and vaguely tropical musical journeys that pulled from the group’s myriad influences.
In 2010 they released Pure Moods as an effort to steer their schizophrenic palate through pop waters. Combining warped rave, R&B, grime, a variety of global rhythms, and other styles too numerous to list, the record was an important stepping stone for an act only beginning to discover the emotional potency of out-and-out pop songwriting.
Two years later, that transformation was complete with Diver, showing Lemonade operating as a focused unit, one more interested in speaking to your heart than blowing your mind.
Lemonade now return with their third studio album, Minus Tide, which finds inspiration in the beloved 80’s sophisti-pop of Prefab Sprout, the melodic ambience of Gigi Masin, the Ibiza-informed electronic forays of Primal Scream and the windswept, Balearic disco of mid-2000’s Gothenburg heroes, Studio. The band’s serene, cerebral sounds have reached a new apex on Minus Tide – the songwriting undeniably more mature and sophisticated. Still living in North Brooklyn and contributing to the community’s cultural patchwork, a sense of urban-itchiness is present in the music, as well as a growing environmental concern for the coastal regions of their Bay Area youth. Additionally, Minus Tide is a celebration of all forms of wanderlust and the eternal pursuit of pleasure through exploration.
