After Hurricane Sandy left Lower Manhattan powerless and Red Hook submerged, New Yorkers came together all over the city and throughout Brooklyn. It was then that Dave Hodge – the veteran Canadian musician (Broken Social Scene, Bran Van 3000), arranger (Janet Jackson/Neptunes, Carly Simon), and composer (through his company Finger Music) was sitting in a café when his acquaintance Leah Siegel (Firehorse, The Citizen's Band) walked by.
The two had met while recording a TV spot years prior but hadn't seen each other since. Maybe it was the post-Sandy you-only-live-once feeling but Dave asked Leah if she'd want to do some writing together. The result is Leisure Cruise.
The band's debut full length is out May 6 on Last Gang Records, but check out the '80s electropop whimsy of "Sailing" below.
