Today we have a stunning audio/visual masterpiece to share. New Zealand band LEISURE hooked up with director Jason Bock to develop a short film to go along with their two recently released singles. “Take You Higher” and “Mesmerised” are set to appear on their upcoming Side B EP, but the group giving fans an early listen set to a beautiful cinematic backdrop.
Kicking off with the summery indie jam “Take You Higher”, you watch as the daydreaming main character travels across a succession of stupefying landscapes, stumbling and falling into each setting. The way the song’s melody smoothly meanders along to the soft guitar chords, it feels very fitting and dream-like. As the track switches to “Mesmerised”, a subdued, synthy downbeat vibe takes over and the music slowly hypnotizes you while a phenomenal panning shot captures your fascination even more.
You can watch the video and listen to the songs below. Enjoy!
