“Absorbing, arresting & spellbinding” Turn Up the Volume
Experimental, moody & mercurial Polish twins Milena & Weronika Szymanek, collectively known as leisure fm, emerge from the shadows to present the single statuesque from their debut EP fables – a dream-pop / electronica fusion that lurks in the shadowy spaces of lost love, sadness & existential dread.
statuesque (& the other tracks on their EP) is produced by the twins along with Charlie Allen (Yungblud, Twenty One Pilots, Hozier) at their studio in creative hotbed SET Woolwich, South London. It’s a poetic rumination on the romanticising of past lovers – an ultimate heartbreak anthem that captures the essence of the struggle of love along with the joy of the struggle itself. Mesmerising vocals are set to a hazy, hypnotising backdrop of guitars, thumping drums & swooning strings while the shadow of Sisyphus looms closely, reminding the listener of how the task of being in love is both futile & hopeful.
The twins say of the release “making statuesque (& the EP as a whole) has helped us work through some difficult feelings & we hope it has a similar cathartic effect on anyone who listens to it. We’ve been working on this project for a while now & are excited to share it with the world, premiering the leisure fm sound!”
