Alright look, I’m going to be upfront with you. I’m completely in love with The Leers’ new single It’s Not Right. So if you came here looking for nuanced music criticism, I urge you to look elsewhere – I’ve got nothing but good things to say about this track.
It’s Not Right is the second single this New Zealand four-piece have released this year, and it’s their strongest release to date. So, it goes without saying, we’re stoked to be premiering it for you today.
With the release of their immersive new single, It’s Not Right, Auckland based four-piece The Leers deliver their strongest track to date.
Throughout the new single, The Leers glide through a euphoric blend of pop, psych and indie-rock to deliver a sound that will seep into your bones and make your body move. The track kicks in with an infectious lead melody that feels simultaneously punchy and dreamy; it will swirl around you, before landing nicely in the depths of your brain.
Always eager to experiment with song structure, The Leers then steer the single into a woozy bridge, driven by a charming croon and lush instrumentation. From here, It’s Not Right explodes into one final chorus of dynamic vocal delivery and colourful guitars. As a searing guitar solo and anthemic chants escort you out of the track’s immersive soundscape, you’ll be left completely captivated by The Leers’ incredible music.
