New York group, The Postelles have been a buzz band since the release of their debut EP in 2008, produced by Strokes guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr. They finally released their self-titled debut album earlier this year. For me, they’ve always sort of sounded like the wimpy 50s sock hop/doo wop loving brother of the Strokes, which is definitely not a bad thing. There’s even some of that Julian Casablancas circular wordplay on today’s featured video, “Fell Asleep on the Dancefloor” as Daniel Balk sings, “I’ll do anything that I’m told to, except anything that I won’t do. And that makes everything you’ve ever done before.”
You can catch The Postelles tomorrow night at SubT with the Wombats. Doors are at 8:30 and tickets cost $15. The show is 17+.
