The song is “about the realisation that you’re not sharing the same lifestyle as those around you”.

Fresh off of being part of our Class of 2022, Lime Garden have shared brand new track ‘Marbles’, as well as announcing a special ‘Clockwork / Marbles’ 7” which is available via So Young Records.

Speaking on their new song, singer Chloe Howard explains, “‘Marbles’ is about the realisation that you’re not sharing the same lifestyle as those around you. It’s about overthinking that comparison to the point where you question your own sanity or direction in life. It tells the story of an individual on a journey of self-discovery that the listener is witnessing from afar but with access to their internal monologue.”

“This wasn’t the easiest song to finish writing - we knew we had a strong chorus, but we just couldn’t seem to join the different sections or to get the detached feeling we wanted. In the studio Leila eventually detuned her guitar for the double track in the verses, this created the warped and dissonant feel we wanted.”
