Weaned on a healthy diet of equal parts sweet Motown sound and New York's grit and grime, The Postelles are next in line to a long tradition of great pop music. At once sweetly constructed and achingly raw, their songs give voice to the modern reality of frenetic city life.
Born in NYC, the foursome found their calling while attending high school together. Those early days of squabbles and triumphs are gleefully chronicled throughout their self titled EP, out on iTunes, which Futuresounds blog called "six of the most enjoyable and head-bobbin' tunes I've heard in some time." Zane Lowe played them on BBC1 saying, "The Postelles are really good, really like them."
The band has begun to attract considerable excitement and attention playing shows in New York, London, and Paris where they have opened for the likes of The Kills, The Wombats, Jack Penate and the Cold War Kids. Spin.com has called their live set "pitch perfect."Summer 2008 saw band playing leading festivals such as Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo. As of late The Postelles have played SXSW '09 the band have been booked for All Points West 2009.
The band recently wrapped a session with Strokes guitarist and solo act Albert Hammond Jr. in his first effort as a producer on the single, "123 Stop."
