'Good Intention Blues' is the epic centerpiece of Modern Leisure's upcoming Another Good Time EP. A portrait of personal change confronting the tedium in a decaying relationship, the song explores that take-stock moment where you realize there's nothing left for you. The party's over and it's time to start cleaning up. Fitting for this time of year, the song blooms from a state of despondency into a budding sense of optimism. Reconciling with the unresolved, 'Good Intention Blues' is a ballad of the equinox.


When it’s time to wake
Another year
Has come and gone
As quickly as it came you
Passed me so coldy
Hello, good morning

Can’t afford the rent
And you can’t deny
Yourself the pleasure
Of another good time
I don’t forgive
Yet everyone else is…

Write yourself a song
Oh about a girl
Who promises to
Love you for a long time
I’ve seen a face
Now it’s off to the races

In your daddy’s car
Oh you got to her
But you never wondered
How you got so far out
Cause you don’t look back

I still open up my heart
When the love can be so
So we never did get far
Ah that wasn’t in your
Basic funcition
So tonight
I decide
do do do do do do do
do do do do do
do do do do do do do do

So cover up that wound
And tell me again about how your new
Policy of truth hurts
Heaven is only
What you can show me

And I don’t think you can
So give up the fight
So say goodbye to that
Feeling for a long time
I don’t forget
Yet everyone else is…

I still open up my eyes
When the light can be so
Harsh and blinding
So we never synthesized
Ah despite all of your good intentions
So tonight
I'll decide
On you
do do do do do do do
do do do do do
do do do do do do do do

Modern Leisure Denver, Colorado

Led by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Casey Banker, Modern Leisure has emerged as one of Denver’s best indie-pop acts. Blending pop hooks and a dash of melancholic wistfulness- the group has quickly distinguished itself among its peers in Colorado. The songs of Modern Leisure tell illicit tales of hedonism and heartbreak under the guise of lush guitars and a hodgepodge of warm melodies. ... more
