Leisure Drop Single ‘Too Much Of A Good Thing’

Leisure Drop Single ‘Too Much Of A Good Thing’

Friday 31st May, 2019 10:05AM

Tāmaki Makaurau dance-pop collective Leisure are fresh back from touring the continent and they’re not mucking around - they’ve shared another single from their upcoming album Twister. ‘Too Much Of A Good Thing’ is the sixth and final cut to drop before the full LP is out Friday 26th July. The latest release is the funkiest by far, knocking out ‘Feeling Free’ as most likely to feature on a Daft Punk ft. Pharrell mood board. Leisure have also announced fellow Aucklanders Imugi 이무기 and Wellington DJ Lord Echo as support for their very first ever national tour!


Friday 26th July - Powerstation, Auckland 

Saturday 27th July - San Fran, Wellington*

Leisure described their new single as "a song about overindulgence and not knowing when to say no. It’s about the rush of hedonism fading and wanting more from life (and yourself)". So say yes to your inner hedonist and chuck the track on repeat…


Leisure’s sophomore LP 'Twister' will be out on Friday 26th of July via Nettwerk.

Press Release:

Fresh from their European sojourn, Auckland’s own supergroup LEISURE share 'Too Much Of A Good Thing', the final single from their upcoming album release TWISTER and announce support acts for their album release tour.

“It was an incredible experience taking LEISURE international to play in London, Paris and Berlin as well as flying the New Zealand flag at The Great Escape.  It was really rewarding to see how fans responded to our show overseas, the songs took on a fresh energy and personality. We made sure to keep things LEISURE and wrapped up the trip with one of our most memorable writing camps so far, this time in a chateau estate north of Paris. We’re now excited to be home and getting ready to release the new project and head out on the road for a very special run of shows.

“‘Too Much Of A Good Thing’ is one of our favourites from the project. It has an instant strut and knock to the beat, we wanted make something you could walk into a party with an entourage in slow-motion to.

"Lyrically it’s a song about overindulgence and not knowing when to say no. It’s about chasing the instant

gratification that is so often promised and promoted in today’s modern society and never quite being satisfied with the outcome. It’s about the rush of hedonism fading and wanting more from life (and yourself).”

The release of TWISTER on 26 July (via their new label Nettwerk) will coincide with LEISURE’s first national tour, set to visit Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. Joining LEISURE on the road will be emerging synth-pop powerhouse duo imugi 이무기, and the shows will also feature a very special DJ set from Lord Echo.

LEISURE’s fan-base continues to grow at a rapid rate with their combined streams now edging close to 70 million and every New Zealand show so far selling out. Can you really have too much of a good thing? Stream the new single and pre-order TWISTER now.
