Album Review: The Leisure Society - 'Into The Murky Water'
Beautifully nostalgic folk-pop, wistful over symphonies of summer
Nobody’s pretending this lot balance on the razor-sharp blade of the cutting edge. Even so, their orchestral whimsy presses the ‘lovely, bordering on twee’ button. For proof, skip to the melancholic swoon of ‘Dust On The Dancefloor’ and ‘This Phantom Life’, the soundtrack to every picnic-date with a cardigan-wearing girl drunk on organic cider in history.
