Most of Leisure meet at Leeds University where they used to play shows alongside folks like Alt-J and King Charles in previous acts. Hailing from East London, they just released their debut single via the Young & Lost Digital Club and it’s a pretty standout affair.
With swanky electronic sounds and a wonderfully rumbling bassline, “Tourist” is easily the most quintessential single for muggy nights downtown in late August since, well, I couldn’t tell you. That’s how good it sounds. While never sticking it’s foot firmly into a sexy, lustful appeal, “Tourist” nevertheless maintains this delectable balance between dance and R&B that makes it very hard to resist.
“You, you look like a stranger in this light, I, I feel like a tourist in my life…”
Certainly we’ve all felt like tourists in our own lives when things have fallen to shit, or unexpected events continually occur…don’t be a tourist and breeze through without downloading this track. It’s too good.
