New Zealand’s alt/indie act, LEISURE has released the first single “Slipping Away” from their upcoming third album Side A, which is scheduled for release later in 2020. 

“Slipping Away” features soft reverb vocals and a dreamy guitar riff that’s met with a jazzy bassline. The smooth transitions and melancholic vibe throughout the song help tell the story of needing to show up for someone you love, even if our own issues are in the way. 

The band’s sound has been consistent throughout their musical career. With “Slipping Away”, their Chillwave approach while keeping their Psychedelic Jazz/Funk touch makes it fit for any easy-listening or relaxing playlists.
