Leisure - "It's Alright (On the Suez Canal)"

Cambridge, MA trio Leisure’s reminiscent of Apple Venus-era XTC well aware of Zach Condon. But only if Andy Partridge had a bit more Brett Anderson in his blood. The group’s doing a few shows with Girls and Dum Dum Girls, so their well-written pop songs should hit more ears soon enough: Get acquainted via the laid-back strings and English gardens of “It’s Alright (On The Suez Canal)” and its edgier Cure-esque B-Side “Outside These Walls.” You’ll basically be standing on two different beaches.
