If it's all behind you If it didn't last Keep the cork in the bottle Skip the toast to the past I wouldn't waste time confessing Sins of your former self Most books aren't worth the paper Better leave them on the shelf I know About your record I already know I know About your record I already know If you didn't mean it Or even if you did Don’t exhume crimes committed When you were just a kid I wouldn’t waste all your effort Putting your life on trial Why bother to defend it When there’s no plausible denial? I know About your record I already know I know About your record I already know I know About your record I already know I know About your record I already know

about

"Electrical Living" is a phrase I saw on an old appliance brochure at a Minnesota Historical Society exhibit about American suburbia in the '50s and '60s. Apparently, the idea was that the promise of the future could only be achieved by buying the latest refrigerators and stoves. When I saw that phrase, I knew right away that I'd found an album name. Our album doesn't have anything thematically to do with the title, but I like to think that electric guitars also hold the key to our future.

"Electrical Living" is a departure for the band, in many ways, and is the beginning of a new era. After our 2017 EP Bicycle Face, we dissolved amicably as a full, live band. However, I wanted to continue on with the Persian Leaps and return to the band's studio project roots. So, the 11 songs on the album were performed by myself and Jon Hunt, a longtime Minneapolis musician, as well as the graphic designer who's created our album covers for years. My goal was to retain the core guitar-driven Persian Leaps sound while trying out some new things like using keyboards for the very first time. Our new process has worked so well that we're already starting on the follow-up album, so stay tuned!
