MP3 of the Day #231 (and more!): The Postelles

By on Friday, 3rd September 2010 at 10:00 am

The Postelles are an American band based in New York City who be right at home alongside what Sunderland’s Frankie and the Heartstrings and Sheffield’s Crookes are doing these days: a return to simplicity and what made everyone love rock ‘n’ roll in the first place back in the ’50s and ’60s, yet updating it for 21st century ears. Clear yet catchy vocals, gorgeous harmonies, and great guitars and drumming. I saw the Postelles open for Portland’s Hockey in March and I thought they were stunning. Apparently, the Futureheads agreed with me, taking the NYC quartet along with them on a tour of the UK in the spring. They even played a headlining gig at London’s Koko in May.

What we have for you today is a triple dose of the Postelles: first, their cover of the Buddy Holly track ‘Everyday’, a more streamlined, less geeky version than the original; second, a video of the band backstage at their sold out gig at New York’s Bowery Ballroom in July; and third, their promo for ‘White Night’. Their EP ‘White Night’ is available now from EMI/Astralwerks. Happy Friday!
