New Zealand supergroup LEISURE never deviates from innovation. Whether they’re building electronic-inspired worlds of disco and funk or melting into indie-pop dreamlands, LEISURE never misses. Their latest offering “Flipside” is a soulful gem pressed with a laidback swing and punchy kicks to boot.
A wiggly chillwave number with a hip cadence, “Flipside” is cool, calm, and collected. This seductive cut sees soft, enchanted vocals spark affairs with discerned drum patters and subdued digital frequencies. A psychedelic breakdown at the 1:45 marker crowns “Flipside” a sophisticated triumph. A network of interlocking rhythms and refined harmonies, LEISURE’s latest is a luxurious listen.
