Imagine Velvet Underground, Eels and Bob Hund jamming at a nightclub in Alaska. Sweet.

Biography

In 1994 3 young guitarists tossed a coin to decide who had to give up the guitar to play drums and bass in the band they had agreed on forming. After their first chaotic rehearsal they agreed that they should all be guitarists. Now quite a few years later the 3 guitarists have been joined by a proper drummer and a proper bassplayer. However chaos has not left the band. With both weird, noisy, silent and beautiful songs Leisure Alaska has found its very own spot somewhere between Velvet Underground, Eels and Bob Hund. There is no wise guy attitude to be found in Leisure Alaska. Just nice music.

Lyrics

Transistors in my mind

Written By: Leisure Alaska

I had transistors in my mind
When time was not enough to show
That time was the place to go
I thought and never did
Is this a potential hit?
I had them on my mind
Anyway it's just a line
Yes time is not enough to show
That time is the place to go

Whatever any of you do
Don't put the deja in my vu

When time was not enough to show
That time was the place to go
A random opinion grew
If it smelled like something new
A line of work for just a day
And then it would pass away
Yes time is not enough to show
That time is the place to go

Whatever any of you do
Don't put the deja in my vu

Highs & Lows

Written By: Leisure Alaska

Sudden highs and sudden lows
I'm not sure where it goes

Certainty? Not on my watch
To make art press the clutch

I really don't mind

Sudden highs and sudden lows
I'm not sure if it shows

I really don't mind
