Back then they were just five friends - names and identities, for the time being, are not important - from New Zealand, each of whom had been working in different strands of New Zealand’s music industry as writers and producers, and each of whom had a yearning to do something a little different, something fresh. There is a reason, they say, they have called themselves LEISURE. “It means that we have to have a really good time doing this. We’ve all been in the industry for years, writing and producing songs for others, but this is our way to remind ourselves why we got into music for the first place. To express ourselves, and for the sheer love of it.”

The band have now signed to Saiko Management, responsible for bringing Lorde to international recognition, and are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album. The project they started in rural splendor at the bottom of the world now looks set to take them global. If their expectations had initially been small, their horizon is now adjusting accordingly.
