Biography

Playing propulsive pop tunes with a streetwise energy and rock & roll attitude, the Postelles are a four-piece group born and bred in New York City. Frontman Daniel Balk, lead guitarist David Dargahi, bassist John Speyer, and drummer Billy Cadden all met while they were attending the same high school in the Big Apple; they shared similar interests in music and played in a handful of garage bands, eventually putting the group together during their early college years. In 2007, the Postelles began playing shows and soon gained a valuable ally in Albert Hammond, Jr., guitarist with the Strokes. Hammond liked the Postelles' music enough to help produce a six-song EP for the band; the EP earned enthusiastic reviews and some British radio play, with BBC 1 disc jockey Zane Lowe spinning their tunes and praising the band on air. The buzz helped the Postelles set up a tour of Europe which included shows in London and Paris, and back home in the States the band was booked into two major summer festivals, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. In early 2009, the Postelles went back into the studio with Hammond to begin work on their debut album. The finished product didn't arrive until 2011, but the Postelles' self-titled debut proved to be worth the wait, earning strong reviews and paving the way for a summer tour. The Postelles toured into 2012 then began work on a second album. ...And It Shook Me appeared in the spring of 2013.
