LEISURE detail 2nd album, release single and announce tour

LEISURE - TWISTER is set to be released on 26 July. The album release will coincide with the Auckland collective’s first full nationwide tour taking place in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. Today, LEISURE share a new single from TWISTER, the energetic pop track ‘On My Mind’.
LEISURE: “It’s been two and a half years since we released our debut album. Admittedly, we had no idea what we were doing at the time, 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.”

“LEISURE have no bad tracks to their name, so it follows that their debut album is one of the very best this year.” - HillyDilly.

“The Kiwi collective hasn't missed a step since first catching our ear."
- Pigeons and Planes.

Today’s news will be hugely welcome to LEISURE fans. The collective’s self-titled album has now amassed 65 million streams, with an ever-growing worldwide fanbase who continue to connect with their manifesto to “keep things LEISURE”.

This marks a new chapter for LEISURE who head to Europe in early May for a sold out headline show in London, before heading to Paris and Berlin and back to the UK for The Great Escape before releasing TWISTER internationally on label Nettwerk, thanks to their recent signing.
“We make our favourite things when we become creatively unconscious. Our sophomore album was a good opportunity for us to explore new ideas. We all took turns as the album took shape to fall in love with each of the songs, each swirling with their own mood and colour. We are very proud to share with the world, come July, our eclectic 14 track collection; TWISTER.”
TWISTER bends and breaks the boundaries between electronic, funk and soul. Fans have been given a few tasters already with infectious tracks ‘Feeling Free’, ‘Easy Way Out’ and today’s single, a boiling pot of its predecessors.

“‘On My Mind’ is a song about “dealing with an intense magnetism to a significant other, giving in to the power that takes hold.

Slow burners, face-slappers, shoegazers, strut-steppers and midnight moodmakers unite, for 2019’s LEISURE - TWISTER.
