    Leisure - "Got It Bad"

    Everyone knows that first impressions are very important, especially in music. In this internet age where music can fade away as quickly as it came about, it’s crucial to put out music that is not only intriguing but also has a lasting effect. New Zealand’s Leisure nailed it with their debut single “Got It Bad.” At first listen, it may not seem ready to be a top hit on pop radio, but there’s a charm about it that makes it replay-worthy.

    “Got It Bad” has a very simple melody, so simple that it’ll certainly get stuck in the head of anyone that listens. Paired with a subtle, smooth bass line, it’s the sort of song that gradually grows more and more enjoyable with time. It’s safe to say that Leisure made a great first impression with this single.—Adrienne Black
