about

"Isn’t there something highly suggestive about darker sounding songs? When their tone is not explicitly despairing, its very existence implies perspective and the possibility, or at least, ambition for control. Leisure, oddly enough given their name, has that power and their music emerges as an assertion of it, confidently identifying problems as they are simultaneously transcended. Confidence might in fact be the best characterization of their music – in an era when less is constantly said to be more, their music is deftly produced and sounds the object of the bands thorough scrutiny, perfectly encapsulating the conceptual urgency that underpins it. “Green Light” follows a successful 2010, that saw Leisure touring with Girls and promoting their self-released single, “It’s Alright (On the Suez Canal)”. Compared to that original single, boisterous and orchestral, their latest will sound more withdrawn, more personal and made less ambiguous without the direct connection to a terrestrial space – the Suez Canal, which some might use to gloss over the song’s significance during casual listening – but in reality, the scope has widened. “Green Light” is a blanket condemnation of the generational lethargy that accompanies our current crux point in history, advocating for engagement and a return to personal industry." -Dwight Pavlovic

"'You don’t have to look, to see what’s happening' – it’s the moment that line was sung that I knew there was a greater, more perplexing thought behind this charming electro-pop single. Steady the whole way through, ‘Green Light’ has that lovable Coldplay type hook, while holding onto a level of diy grit that could freshen up any genre." -Dingus on Music

"...reminds me of what I loved about a young U2." -Jakub Alexander, ISO50

"Don’t sleep on these guys. You’ll regret it." -We All Want Someone To Shout For

"...bewitching." -Crack in the Road
