Modern Leisure Finds Themselves on Latest Indie-Pop Single
Modern Leisure’s shares their latest indie-pop track with “Do You Find”. A song filled with mellow vocals and instrumentals that fans have come to enjoy from musician Casey Banker. A sound for mid-afternoon daydreams, “Do You Find” is the perfect song to get lost in. A somewhat melancholy track, there is an effortless and relatable nature to the way Modern Leisure makes their music. “Do You Find” is just another example of their gifted songwriting and ability to turn their personal stories into a great indie-pop track.
“Do You Find” is my love letter to pop music. I’ve always felt a deep love for tasteful pop and never understood why some of my friends didn’t like certain songs as much as I did. This is a song that serves as an appeal to the genre. It’s called Do You Find because it hopes to rekindle an innocent love of a great hook or blissful chords that elevate your mood. I feel like I’ve never gone “full pop” with Modern Leisure before; this was my attempt at doing so- while simultaneously making an appeal for why it matters. In a larger context, DYF is also about examining your core beliefs and becoming more open-minded about ideas you’ve overlooked or have forgotten about. A message that is especially poignant in these chaotic times.”
Modern Leisure is the music project of Casey Banker (Shady Elders). Over his career, Casey has shared the stage with Mazzy Star, The Lumineers, Wild Nothing, The Drums, and DeVotchka. The songs of Modern Leisure weave personal stories of one man’s strange twenties- those insane, horrible and lovely experiences that make us who we are.
