Leisure - The Invisible Hand
4 out of 5 stars

Leisure - The Invisible HandWhen a band hails from Cambridge, Massachusetts, home of Harvard University, you’d expect their music to have a touch of class and more than a dash of intelligence. It’s no surprise then that with ‘The Invisible Hand’, American trio Leisure have crafted a subtly layered, and hugely enjoyable slice of indie that more than passes with distinction.”

Taking the ambient guitar work of Foals, the yearning vocals of Robert Smith, and a distorted chorus that The Shins would be proud of, Leisure craft a song that nonetheless firmly establishes their own, unique sound. From the opening notes to the final fade out, this song screams the kind of easy charm that lesser bands could barely hope to imitate.

They may sing about being invisible, but if they keep producing material as good as this, their days of anonymity may be fairly short lived.
