The Persian Leaps Announce Machines for Living
We’ve long cherished the work of Drew Forsberg and his outfit, the Persian Leaps. This week, the group announce their latest release, an EP titled Machines for Living. Our first sneak peek is this polished bit of power pop, specially built for fans of later Teenage Fanclub and the like. It employs that huge wall of ringing guitars, more sharper than distorted, building a wave of melody to meet up with the vocals. And on that note, there’s just something about the way the vocals are done here, from the “oohs” to the way they drop in on the chorus that makes me feel like this is Drew’s best work to date. Enjoy this jam my friends. Machines for Living is out on October 7th.
