"The Kiwi collective hasn't missed a step since first catching our ear" - Pigeons and Planes.
"LEISURE have no bad tracks to their name, so it follows that their debut album
is one of the very best this year" - HillyDilly.
LEISURE: "It's been something like 700 days since we released our debut album - admittedly we had no idea what we were making, or how we were doing it, the only certainty was that the combination of the creative energies when we were all in a room was a feeling none of us had felt before.
Over the past year or so we've been capturing new moments from new places for the next collection of LEISURE songs..."
Made up of five independently talented and successful members; LEISURE are an anomaly in the music industry. Having amassed over 50 million streams on their debut album, which entered at #2 in the NZ charts, they have built a rabid fan following that has seen their very occasional live shows sell out and become the stuff of legends - in April this year they performed their debut, backed by the 72-piece Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra, to a sold-out Auckland Town Hall.
Their music has become a staple in the sync world, they have collaborated with hip-hop star, Goldlink, and have now signed globally to US / UK record label Nettwerk for their forthcoming album.
With their sophomore album complete, LEISURE will play two shows in AUCKLAND and WELLINGTON.
Promising an aural journey through a new musical landscape, but with the typical breadth that is both rare and unique to this collective.
"We're looking forward to sharing these moments, that have only existed in our own atmosphere. For us these shows signify the start of a new set of sonic sunsets, the tone for the next wave of music.
Figuratively speaking, we've set up the house, the incense is burning, and we're looking forward to having you stay in our new place.
Spark up and tune out from the modern madness, if your feet move don't freak out, it's time to feel it all over again. See you there."
