Lemon Drink: Our single launch show at the Old Hairdressers has been our favourite so far

Formed over a mutual love of amaretto sours and alternative music, Lemon Drink is the brainchild of duo Sophie Bartholomew and Kirstie “KC” Cunningham. Formed in early 2017 as an acoustic duo, lemon Drink soon expanded in sound and in personnel. The acoustic guitars were put to the side and Lemon Drink became a 4-piece indie outfit exploring the sometimes challenging and often humorous aspects of modern life as a 20-something woman. Their debut single, A Song For You, is a serious tongur-in-cheek track about bad dating experiences, so The Fountain caught up with the band to discuss the new track and what plans are in store for the band.

It reverberated around the venue, and inside everyone’s ribcages.
