about

"So life isn't always easy in the tropical paradise of Queensland. Don't whinge about - sing about it! Brisbane band Stress of Leisure capture perfectly the vagaries of life in the planet's soft underbelly. Sonically, it's a whirlpool of post-punk vocals, rich guitars and gritty synth teamed with spot on and often-funny lyrics." - Sally Browne (The Sunday Mail)

"It's downright ludicrous that Brisbane four-piece The Stress Of Leisure aren't on the tips of everyone's tongues right now, especially given the indie-popsters have been gracing us with their presence for eight years, albeit with a rotating lineup. Even more mindboggling is that Cassowary is their fourth album to date. Hooking in early to a vibrant and playful sound tinged with post-punk attitude shows that these two guys and two girls have that knack for staying one step ahead of a pack of peers who've only cottoned on recently." - Carley Hall (the music.com.au)
