Leapling: “If You’re Patient”
Here’s a pleasant little piece of twee pop out of New York from Father/Daughter Records. Leapling are a new quartet of NYC music veterans consisting of Dan Arnes, Yoni David, R.J. Gordon and Joey Postiglione. Based on this single their sound seems to skew towards jazz and pop influenced soft rock, along the lines of indie darlings Belle & Sebastian. Though I am still experiencing something of a hangover from this genre – I am happy to report that “If You’re Patient” has thus far produced only positive side effects. Listen to the tune below and if you dig it you can pick up the limited edition EP from Father/Daughter. Get them while they last though – only 500 copies printed.
