Leisure Centre - Getting To Know

Leisure Centre - Getting To Know
Recently having changed their name from The Do Yo Thangs (to the delight and/or consternation of internet comment threads) Don’t Let Go is the band’s first single under the Leisure Centre name. Don’t Let Go perfectly captures the group’s evolving sound and aesthetic, and is a perfect note with which to strike out anew. Leisure Centre feels that the name change was a timely and essential step, and that both the band and the Mind Full album will be stronger for the change.

Mind Full extends and expands on the band’s sweet future soul / alt-R&B sound which veers into far darker territories than their previous offerings - tour of extremes that sees the band experiment with frenetic drum programming, cascading synthesizers, jilted backbeats and bouncy new jack era R&B. Throughout the album, and surrounded by massive choral vocal arrangements, drummer/singer/ composer/mastermind Hugh Rabinovici alternates lead vocal duties with Audrey Powne, and their two deeply different voices and approaches define a record that is all about striking the perfect balance between contrary impulses.

About this track...

‘Getting To Know’ is a heady ode to first-days-of-love infatuation. The futuristic slow-jam is all about Audrey Powne’s vocals as she walks us through those exuberant first moments of connection with someone new, supported by layers of synthesizers, understated guitar and the stacked group vocals that are Leisure Centre’s trademark.
