Why do we like this?

I can’t put my finger on it, but this song makes me stop in my tracks. I feel it soak into me, and the song becomes meditative. Perhaps it’s the synth that’s so hypnotic. Or the simple lyrics. Regardless, I love how it stops me – the way LEISURE has done that through this song is insane. I mean, music in general – the way soundwaves filter in through our ears and tickle our brain, is gorgeous.

LEISURE just released this single, along with a second “Take You Higher.” They’re a much loved New-Zealand based group often featured on here, so make sure to take a listen to some of their other work as well.

Why do we like this?

London-based duo Ned Franc and John Moody have bequeathed unto us a gift of the most euphoric kind – an electronic, dance-pop, disco-rave-inspired track replete with grooving synths, funky basslines, and some dope-ass heavy beats.

Irresistibly bold and simple, “Losing Touch” is a dance track that makes it difficult to sit still. The songwriting is simple, but the rhythms are so fun and colourful that anything more complicated wouldn’t do the track justice. It’s designed to get you moving and doesn’t take itself too seriously – a pertinent reminder for me to do the same, especially on those more challenging days.

In a statement, the band had the following to say about this bouncy, glittering slice of disco pie:

“The song tries to capture the euphoria you feel when you’re able to lose touch, to zone out, to really live in the moment, and escape from a sometimes mundane and repetitive reality. ‘Losing Touch’ feels a lot more linear than anything we’ve put out up to date. We wanted to try and create a hypnotic groove that you can lose yourself in.”

“Losing Touch” is the first single released from Franc Moody’s upcoming EP, House of FM, and is due out May 19th, 2021.
