New Music/Video: Postiljonen

The hazy, dream electro-pop thing is pretty big in indie music these days. The fact that bands like CHVRCHES are playing The Granada in Lawrence before even releasing a full-length album is pretty telling. The next band that should be making that kind of leap in popularity is Sweden's Postiljonen. The band will release their debut album Skyer on Best Fit Recordings on July 22nd and it is easily going to be one of my favorite albums of 2013. If you like stuff like M83 or jj, you'll most certainly find a lot to like here as well.

There doesn't appear to be any word on a US tour at this point and there is surprisingly little written about them from blogs outside of a handful that I can find. The band also has a video out for what might be the best track on the album, the closing track 'Atlantis'. The song sounds like it could have been a track off the last M83 album, which is just about the highest compliment I could give it.

Check out the video for 'Atlantis' below and I'll make sure and post something if they ever make it Stateside.
