Positively obsessed with the silver screen of mid-20th century Britain, London lads The Great Leslie infuse fast-paced and dramatic, energetic indie rock with vintage, old-worlde style, latest single ‘All Good Things’ being their most perfect exemplar yet with the four-piece stitching a quote from Celia Johnson in the 1945 classic Brief Encounter on fighting impermanence together with utterly bang up to date modern sounding Two Door Cinema Club-esque chiming guitar lines.
Vocalist Ollie Trevers compares, with an ardent croon, the end of a party at sunrise to not wanting to let go of a relationship and, not to labour too cheesy a point, after all of the cheery momentum and buoyant rock’n’roll zeal the track delivers we’ll add this song to the list of things we don’t want to let go of just yet.
The Great Leslie have bagged a support slot opening for Franz Ferdinand on their Hits to the Head Tour, along with the equally excellent Los Bitchos at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse on 19th October 2022, if you fancy checking them out live. You’ve still got time to grab a ticket. A cracking little line up if ever we saw one.
‘All Good Things’ was released on Friday 23rd September. Have a listen on Spotify below:
