"Limebridge: "Copy and Paste""

For the second time in as many days, an interesting net-release has appeared from the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, shown above on a winter's day. The band in question are the very English-sounding Limebridge, who've been in existence since the start of 2005. The recording is a three-track EP by the title of "Copy and Paste."
It can be downloaded for free from several locations, all of which are warmer than the northern nastiness shown above.
Given the modest size of the EP (and the silence surrounding its publication), it comes as no surprise that this five-piece band has a tiny presence online, too, consisting basically of a MySpace page and a collection of materials on the Russian social networking site, "V kontakte" (In Touch).

The three songs are impressive, especially in their guitar work, and suggest the band could well attract the attention of a (major) label in the near future. Nonetheless, the degree with which Limebridge have changed or morphed over their brief existence might suggest future difficulties for an A&R department. "Over the course of our [brief] existence, we've changed two drummers. We've also changed our style and musical preferences, too."
Over the course of our [brief] existence, we've changed two drummers. We've also changed our style and musical preferences, too.
We can already hear the noise of press releases being shredded.

The spirited, jangly forms of their songs have been reached after what Limebridge see as a four-stage evolutionary process. "First of all there was grundge. The real thing! Good, honest grundge.... Then, after a long absence from the stage and some electronic experiments, we started performing again with a new, redesigned set-list. Interesting guitar-work, together with some attractive lyrics, did the trick! We started getting more and more fans with every gig."
We're not sure if they counted the snowmen.
The result of Limebridge's trial-and-error approach is the EP's "hip, European-sounding dance music. It's certainly highly regarded in three German towns - 'cos that's where we had a small tour in July, 2008!"
We wrote a few days ago about the St. Petersburg ensemble, Billy's Band, who also completed a small outing to the same country, simply because some Germans saw them on the street in Russia - and suggested a quick local tour. There must be some Teutonic tourist wandering around the world's biggest country waving visas and sauerkraut at people.

While following the aroma of pickled cabbage, the musicians ask that their name not be translated; to our ears it summons associations with the London district of Limehouse, but the band give no indications as to whether that might be true or deliberate.
Only a promo poster, shown below, turns something metaphorical into a (semi-)concrete reference: "Our name merely prepares listeners for the music. It has a pleasant sound. That's all there is to it!"
