Lyrics from Little SisterThe Postelles are a four-piece indie band from New York, New York boasting early rock and roll sensibilities with a modern twist. Members Daniel Balk (vocals, guitar) David Dargahi (guitarist), John Speyer (bassist) and Billy Cadden (drummer) came together in high school, before making original music together in college. In 2007, the band began playing shows around New York City, eventually catching attention of The Strokes’ guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. With his production help, the band recorded a six-song EP. After earning enthusiastic reviews, including BBC1 DJ Zane Lowe praising the band on air, The Postelles embarked on a European tour, followed by slots at two major summer festivals in the US (Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza). Hammond, Jr. worked with the band on their self-titled full-length album, which was released on +1 Records in May 2011.
