PREMIERE: Lemats Stream New EP “Apples & Oranges”

Since their 2015 inception, New Jersey-based indie rockers Lemats have been steadily infiltrating the New York music scene. Now, poised for breakout and with more shows lined up, the four-piece is preparing for big things.

Forthcoming EP Apples and Oranges (which we are excited to give you a first listen) eschews oversimplification and easy genre-characterization for a dynamic live sound that features unexpected tempo changes, thrumming jump-around-in-the-mosh-pit riffs, and just a pinch of sonic weirditude. And though it deals thematically with introspection and challenges, it never loses its sense of fun.

In that way and more, Lemats is a band of polarity. Poised comfortably on razor-thin lines between indefinite genre-bending and elements of traditional jazz and alt rock, they find ways to counteract their sobering librettos with lightheartedness; an auditory compass for navigating life because, sometimes, we all need help balancing. Says singer/lyricist Frank Calabrese: “Music has always helped me get through life, in a way. I’ve always reverted back to what my favorite lyricists have said. I hope the music I make can do the same thing for other people.”
