Bio

Leisure Centre are an alt R&B band originating from the bountiful band breeding ground of Melbourne, Australia.

An infectious blend of “jazz elements, soul nods and glitchy synths with heavenly vocals on top” (The Music, AU). The band’s sweet beat treats make for a joyous lip pouting and head bopping affair, whilst the heart felt soulful lyrics move both feet and emotions simultaneously.

Brainchild of drummer/songwriter/co-vocalist Hugh Rabinovici the tunes take influence from artists such as Anderson .Paak, Solange, The Internet and an extensive love for Stevie Wonder’s back catalogue.

Leisure Centre’s released their debut EP, One Plus One, through HopeStreet Recordings in September 2016, connecting with soul enthusiasts to hip hop heads alike. 2018 is set to be another cracker year for the band with the much anticipated release of their debut album, Mind Full.

Good production. Amazing vocal. Nice harmonies. Bit more lead might sound good maybe?
