The Postelles are proud to be from New York; and where most bands shun the Manhattan village, opting more for the indie chic, Brooklyn, these boys proudly declare their love of hometown, NYC. The British music press heralded them as a fresh new sound coming out of New York City and influential Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe praised the band. Back at home, Rolling Stone and Spin drew attention to the Postelles classic aesthetic. They played with the likes of The Kills, The Wombats, and Jack Penate as well as at major festivals including Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, and are gracing the stage at Music Midtown on Saturday.
