The Persian Leaps - Your City, Underwater
Are you a fan of the sort of crunchy, jangling power pop and noise pop that many of us, and certainly the WYMA crew, love about the early Teenage Fanclub albums or, perhaps, The Feelies and R.E.M.? If so, we welcome you to The Persian Leaps' fanclub. If you aren't already a member, you may be new here because we covered two previous EPs from the Minnesota trio. This Friday sees the release of their new five-song EP Your City, Underwater. Hooks, riffs clever lyrics and themes such as anxiety and climate change catastrophe are in abundance, and your only complaint can be that it is over too quickly. But the band manages an EP per year, so you can load up on their back catalog after grabbing this one.
The Persian Leaps are Drew Forsberg (vocals/guitar), Adam Brunner (bass/vocals), and Mike McCloskey (drums/vocals). Your City, Underwater is available in digital and CD formats via Land Ski Records. See the Bandcamp link below.
