girl in the striped poloneck

in november 2006 i posted a track by the postmarks which went down really well with blowupdoll readers due to their mix of doll vocals, 60's stylings and indie pop vibe. now they have a new album out and you must listen to this track from the album- it's cinematic and dollicious-
THE POSTMARKS - NO-ONE SAID THIS WOULD BE EASY
good, no?
check them out on myspace too.

Wow I've never heard of The Postmarks before, but I like what I hear - those sweeping cinematic strings and widescreen production, will be perfect for our sister night Tonight We Fly!

on first listen it really reminds me of My Life Story, and the girl's vocal shares something with Helen from Ladytron. Will definitely be visiting their myspace this week.

thanks for the music

Excellent, mordi!

Listened to this track (I was greatly impressed) and very quickly found a version of them doing Saint Nancy's 'You Only Live Twice'. Apparently they have an album full of cover version. Lovely.

Superb!
