The Persian Leaps

The band recently completed a follow-up EP Drive Drive Delay. The EP features five short, infectious songs dripping with divine guitar noise underpinning gorgeous vocal harmonies.

“The Persian Leaps” began as a phrase singer/guitarist Drew Forsberg doodled in a notebook margin during a college Greek Archaeology course. He wrote music independently under that name for years, until finally assembling a full band in 2012 to perform and record driving, chiming music influenced by My Bloody Valentine, The Smiths, Guided by Voices and Teenage Fanclub.

In 2013, the Persian Leaps released debut EP Praise Elephants, which the NME described as a “celestial guitar jangle”. The band recently completed a follow-up EP Drive Drive Delay. The EP features five short, infectious songs dripping with divine guitar noise underpinning gorgeous vocal harmonies.
