Lemonade Shoelace aims to load up the senses with colour, rich melodies and textures of sound that embrace the last 50 years of popular music. The tracks are written, recorded and produced entirely in a small home studio by one person, delivered in a classic yet futuristic style. This is the project of 23 year old Ruairí Richman, a graduate of the BIMM institute in Dublin and a native of Newcastle, Co. Down. He namechecks Air, Flaming Lips, John Lennon and Tame Impala.
“I knew I wanted to get something bold and colourful,” Ruairí says. “Not just visuals but music you have to listen twice to. I love music where every time you listen to it, you hear something else in the song. Interesting music.”
