Formed in a summer haze back in 2016, LEECHES set out to meld infectious pop hooks and fuzzy alt-rock, and somehow ended up with the perfect mix. Their debut EP, ‘Strange Bonds’ was released in early 2017 via Leisure Records, with the follow up EP ‘WATUSI’ seeing release less than a year later in the early moments of 2018. Both EP’s are a trip through duo’s thoughts and whimsy, blending the trio’s arena-sized guitar licks with their lo-fi bedroom-pop approach to production.
‘Flowers in the Garden’ is LEECHES’ first track in 2019, but expect more to come before the year’s out.
Bassist and co-vocalist Jack Pearce says of the track: “‘Flowers in the Garden’ was written while we were feeling pretty aware of how little there is to do in this part of the world. You make your own entertainment here as its not exactly a cultural mecca, but it has its perks. It sort of walks the line between the agitation of limited options and the comfort in the freedom of being disconnected from the bigger things.”
