Electronic R&B-Crossover Band, LEISURE, Share New Single, “Flipside”


Five-piece alternative/electronic/r&b band, LEISURE, are proven tastemakers with a relentlessly evolving approach to their sound. The New Zealand outfit recently made an appearance on the site with their infectious audio/visual singles, “Take You Higher/Mesmerised,” and are ready to grace your ears once again with their next single, “Flipside.”

In true LEISURE fashion, the track weaves in and out of electro-funk, shoegaze, electronica, and laid-back r&b. Some silky smooth vocals glide over a funk and hip hop inspired drum beat while a groovy bassline keeps things moving. About halfway through listening, the band introduces a Daft Punk-inspired vocoder that adds just the right amount of nostalgic spirit.

“Flipside” is the third single off their upcoming EP, SIDE B, which is set to release on October 1st. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any releases before then but for now stream the track below and enjoy!
