For Toronto four-piece Persian Rugs it's all about pop with a lowercase p. The group's jangly, dreamy sound recalls the halcyon days of C-86 style indie pop and 90s shoegaze melodicism. Their debut single "Always All," released on NYC-based Cloudberry Records in 2011, garnered early attention from Pitchfork and Exclaim! and saw the band play well-received sets at NYC Popfest and NXNE. The band has shared stages with Veronica Falls, Devon Williams, Amos The Transparent, The Hoa Hoas, The Two Koreas, and The Blakes.
