P.E. 's sophomore album, The Leather Lemon, ushers in a new erafor the New York band. A wild ride through chewy bubblegum pop,sweeping synthetic orchestrations, and mutant club beats, the albumslides ever closer to the fully-realized pop sensibility only winked atwith their debut album Person (2020) and subsequent releases. Recorded primarily at Schenke's Studio Windows in Brooklyn, NY, TheLeather Lemon was cultivated from a fertile creative period betweenspring 2020 and summer 2021, which also yielded 2021's acclaimedThe Reason For My Love EP.Digging into mystery, romance, and sex appeal, the album centersit's sound within a Bermuda Triangle of dance music, electronic composition, and experimental rock. Members Jonathan Schenke, BobJones, and Jonny Campolo play within pop parameters, buildingupon free-form collaboration to create a fluorescent groove machinethat harnesses the energy of their frenetic live shows. Singer Veronica Torres explores her softer side, expanding her vocal repertoire from spoken word and jagged growls to cherubic and sensuouspsalms. Sax virtuoso Benjamin Jaffe's chiseled experimental tone isheard in an extended solo of true romance in "Tears in the Rain," asomber surrealist duet penned by Torres and Andrew Savage, singer/guitarist of Parquet Courts.It is a reckoning record for the times; an album of psychedelic resurfacing, real-time response to world events, and soft, sympatheticmagic. This is a collection of songs shaped by five individuals whoembrace music-making as a way to center themselves in times ofuncertainty; it's resilience and imagination given shape. The LeatherLemon is a true sweet-and-sour listening experience, an album asbright and clear as it is fractured and fun. Get turned UP and ON withthe electrifying new lemon drop from P.E.!
