MM Shorts 425: The Persian Leaps

The Persian Leaps are a four-piece noise pop band from St. Paul, MN.

They’re releasing their 5-song debut EP, Praise Elephants on Aug 15, and while they think they sound like Big Star meets My Bloody Valentine, we think if we could play the guitar we would want to play it just like they do on this brilliant track Silent Treatment (click here for a name-your-price download).

Keep your eyes on these boys – recommended!


And as a bonus, you can also pick up their first single Entropy here as a name-your-price deal.
