Leisure toured with Girls (the band, not just s a bunch of females) last year, but they changed their sound and are now back. With “Green Light,” Leisure sounds like U2 or The Cure filtered through a present-day indie rock sensibility. If you sped it up a little, added in some Coldplay caliber production, replaced the guitar work with something a little more straightforward, layered the vocals, and beefed up the drums, you might have yourself an arena rocker. But this isn’t that, and I’m glad.
