LEURE is the electronic beats project from Ash Hendriks . Sensual and spacious electronic soundscapes, slow burning hypnotic bass, littered with unusual and shifting beats, and drenched in floating vocals layered heavily atop of each other. Leure has been likened to Tricky, Grimes, Bat For Lashes, Lykke Li, Fever Ray, The XX, Zola Jesus and Marina Topley Bird to name but a few, some very nice company to keep.
Debut single 'Tired' was met with immediate airplay and love from the media and the public from around the world. Having recently toured Europe after showcasing at Waves Festival in 2013 (Vienna - only Australian artist invited), Leure has had an incredibly busy show calendar including supports for Tame Impala, Maria Minerva (Estonia/ London), Chet Faker (Aust) Owl Eyes (Aust) , POND, Lil Jabba (US), The Kite String Tangle and Cashmere Cat (Nor) amongst increasing shows in Melb and Sydney. Collaborations include Flight Tonight's 'Lines' and Dom Simper's (Tame Impala) slow burning dancefloor remix of debut single 'Tired'. Ash is currently in Amsterdam for a three month residency at OT301. Here she will be writing and recording her second full length album as well as collaborating with artists alike within the organisation.
