We have found the perfect song to get you in to weekend mode . Bristol based alt-indie four piece Adult Leisure have released their latest single “Control” and if we are being honest it’s absolutely Phenomenal. Taken from their upcoming debut EP “The Weekend Ritual “,that will be released December 2nd 2022
Their upcoming debut EP The Weekend Ritual was written, recorded and produced by the band themselves in its entirety and mixed by Ollie Searle. With their signature jangly guitar swells and heartfelt vocals, coupled with their heart-on-sleeve subject matter, this is Adult Leisure truly announcing themselves as a band not to be missed.
Reflecting on the EP, the band state, “we’ve always wanted to produce an honest and homegrown debut selection of songs which both showcases our ability as musicians, but also keeps in line with our honest grass roots style. We wanted people to hear us with no filter or 3rd party influence. In an industry where so much is insincere, we wanted to give people us and us alone.”
The EP’s leading single “Control” was written, recorded and produced by the band themselves. Combining gorgeous melodies, infectious choruses and glistening guitar lines that are otherworldly “Control” is a tale of tortured love, yet sugary sweet from start to finish. We have this track stuck on repeat for days, one listen and you will understand why
After previously helping to usher in Bristol’s indie boom of the 2010’s, guitarist David Woolford and bassist James Laing (Moon Club), vocalist and lyricist Neil Scott (Aztecs) and drummer Nathan Searle (Towers) came together to form this new project following a thirst to create during the pandemic, formed via countless video calls during the heart of 2020’s UK lockdown.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the single the band state, “Control focuses around an immeasurable love to which it’s clear the object of affection isn’t the wisest choice, yet still the lover is drawn ever closer, due to the overwhelming presence the recipient of their adoration has within their life.They are drug they can’t seem to pry themselves away from. They are hell,yet they are home and this is the battle the lover is having with themselves”
