Exciting New Zealand Band Leisure Deliver Must Hear 12-Track Debut Album

Leisure Debut Album

We've been excited about the five-piece New Zealand band Leisure, who have just released their debut 12-track album, Leisure. The eclectic indie band hit the ground running a string of high-quality singles and have followed up with a finished product that's a pleasant listen from start to finish.

We introduced the genre-blending group to TSIS with “Nobody,” which is their surprising collaboration with Goldlink serving as track nine on the LP. Leisure has developed an easily recognizable sound that’s apparent throughout the record combining various styles and influences. They capture a dreamy sound blending live instrumentation with electronic elements that combines psychedelic indie rock with R&B, funk, soul, blues, electronic influences and more.

The songs range from smooth and sexy tracks highlighting 80s funk synthesizers to slow, relaxing tunes utilizing chilled guitar licks.  Leisure’s debut is a successful showcase of their ability to craft incredibly catchy music that’s a great soundtrack to set a chill mood. Listen to the full album below and enjoy!

THEY. Release Nirvana-Inspired Track “Rather Die”

THEY. Press Shot Black And White

Electrifying LA-based duo THEY. are back with "Rather Die" paying homage to Nirvana. THEY. have been on a roll since releasing their debut Nu Religion EP a year ago, and followed it up with recent singles "Say When" and "Deep End" in addition to appearing alongside ZHU and Skrillex on the hit collaboration "Working For It."

"Rather Die" uses the famous guitar riff from Nirvana’s "Polly" as they make their own track surrounding the chords. THEY. have a history of using guitar in their genre-blending music and continue this trend. We hear the versatile duo explore beyond their electronic R&B roots as they go a more singer/songwriter route channeling Kurt Cobain’s inspiration. The duo is working on their upcoming debut album HYENA. Enjoy!

Jon Bellion is one of the more diverse artists we cover here on TSIS. The New York-based producer, singer and songwriter has just hopped on Ojivolta’s "Game Plan" for a feel-good collaboration. Mark Williams and Raul Cubina of Ojivolta have a history with Bellion as they were actually the executive producers on his album, The Human Condition.

"Game Plan" pairs the singer's powerful, yet smooth vocals with a production filled with catchy vocal chops, slick guitar riffs and claps. The beat switches up a few times, but makes sure to highlight Bellion's vocals throughout. The song will appear on Ojivolta's upcoming EP due in January. Enjoy!
