New Zealand band LEISURE, recently dropped their new album Sunsetter, now available via Nettwerk Records. The full-length, is the follow up to heir self-titled debut LP. Sunsetter features previous singles “Slipping Away,” “Take Me Higher”/”Mesmerised,” and “Flipside,” concluding their string of EP releases Side A and Side B.

Side A, a five-track release that began during a trip to France and centered around new beginnings, was followed last month’s companion piece, Side B, a record that played thematically between consciousness and unconsciousness, embracing challenges and moving forward for the betterment of oneself.

“After a slightly darker edge to our 2nd album ‘Twister,’ the next phase of our LEISURE journey began with a new sunrise, a fresh light which gave us clarity as a group on how we wanted to move forward. We refocused on what was important to us, traveled our country and beyond, started families, and became closer friends. New ideas began with excitement and freedom; there had been a weight lifted.”

“As the world threw its challenges, we decided to release the record as we created it, sharing SIDE A and SIDE B in real-time. Now, as we bring them together with these extra songs, the sun sets on what has been an incredible journey. Once again, we feel proud of what we have created and are even more excited for what lies ahead.”
