Lime Ricky are tearing up Toronto, and you don’t have to look much further than their clip for “It’s Been Real” to see why.
Sure, the seats are mostly empty, and yeah, those who are in attendance seem disinterested in the band at best, but that’s OK, because the four-piece punk outfit are stealing the show anyways. They have energy to spare.
The song itself is a scathing break-up tune locked in with big guitar riffs and a understated melody that — just wait — will stick to you. “I wish that I could say it’s been real,” Tyler MacDonald sings, “but it hasn’t been at all.”
