In a world preoccupied with instant gratification and overnight success, Leisure have been taking the scenic route. The five members – and mates – came together in 2015 on a spontaneous trip up New Zealand’s ragged west coast. At that stage, they’d independently spent years churning through the music machine’s tight jaws. Individually, the five are award winning songwriters, producers and creatives. Together, they resolved to carve out a new musical paradigm: cut the crap, enjoy the ride and above all, keep it Leisure.  400+ million streams later and sold out dates throughout NZ, Australia, UK, Europe and now USA, they’re doing something right. In 2023, the collective returned with their 4th studio album Leisurevision. The album takes inspiration from various eras – from the smoothness of seventies Blue-eyed-Soul to the romantic energy of early eighties post-disco, locking in with mid-nineties hip-hop drum programming and glued down with what has become somewhat of a signature lush Leisure guitar sound heard across their discography. It’s this unique Leisure-ly brand of soul-searching electro-funk and shoegaze that has charmed fans around the world.
