The Persian Leaps - Drive Drive Delay
Overflowing with chunky riffs, ringing chords and sweet hooks, Drive Drive Delay form The Persian Leaps delivers is a delicious winter stew of power pop, college rock and shoegaze. Think Teenage Fanclub with a touch of My Bloody Valentine and doses of the band's Minneapolis brethren Husker Du and Sugar. In my opinion, "Truth" best illustrates the band's virtues the best, but all five tracks are really good. If you like loud, muscular power pop bound together with a bit of sweetness, this is as good as it gets.
The Persian Leaps are Drew Forsberg (founder/vocals/guitar), Brad Hendrickson (bass/vocals/guitar), and Michael McCloskey (drums/vocals). Drive Drive Delay is out now in the US via Land Ski Records; check the Bandcamp link below. It will be available in the UK in early 2015.
