About us

The Lemons was founded in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in 2004. The band secured a devout following after their impassioned set at the 2006 Playtime Festival (Mongolia's first and biggest rock fest). Their annual performances at Playtime have consistently been lauded. Their Red Album was the first rock album released by a Mongolian band to achieve national commercial success without heavily compromising its rock sound. Critics described it as sounding similar to early work of The Strokes. Its hits were Hairtai and Dzuud Noirondoo (transcribed from the Mongolian Cyrillic alphabet). The band was able to devote its energies full- time to music and began playing multiple shows a week at Ulanbaatar music venues.

In 2009, The Lemons released their second album, Залуу Ленины Ойролцоо Зн Давхарт. It expanded the band's sound to include influences from post rock to punk rock. Due to its more challenging sound, the album was less popular than their first effort, though in the three years since their first album the core Mongolian rock audience had expanded significantly and almost universally declared it a triumph. In 2015, The Lemons released their third studio album, III. The album consists of 10 tracks, most famous tracks are Сүүлийн уянга (Suuliin uyanga), and Paradise. At the same year, The Lemons performed their 3rd big concert at Crocus Event Hall, in Mongolia. In May of 2017, The Lemons released their first live album "Unplugged in UB"
