NZ Funk Aliens LEISURE Cross Over To The Dark Side On New Toe-Tapper ‘Easy Way Out’


Critically-acclaimed New Zealand-based five-piece LEISURE are getting our toes tapping and heads bopping with their brooding new slice of electro-funk, ‘Easy Way Out’.

An infectious tapestry of rhythmic guitar lines powered by a dark, driving offbeat that skulks beneath a drunken alien-like synth and sinisterly hushed vocal melodies, this artfully constructed groover is the perfect soundtrack for a midnight drive. 

...Maybe through one of those sleepy little rural towns with a water tower where something just seems off.

With lyrics based on overcoming personal challenges and self-empowerment, ‘Easy Way Out’ has been plucked off the LEISURE’s forthcoming sophomore album, and arrives on the heels of the group signing on with Auckland-based Saiko Management, also home to widely-frothed acts like E^st and Glades.
