NYC rock quartet, The Postelles, has announced plans to release a new 4-track EP White Night (Astralwerks/Capitol) on March 2nd, 2010 (Their self-titled full length CD will be released later this year). ‘White Night’ will be available digitally and will include three brand new songs, “White Night,” “Sleep on the Dance Floor,” and “Looking Glass,” which were produced by The Strokes axeman Albert Hammond Jr. and The Postelles. The digital EP also features an iTunes exclusive remix of “Sleep on the Dance Floor” by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor. Consisting of Daniel Balk (lead vocals, guitar), David Dargahi (lead guitar), John Speyer (bass), and Billy Cadden (drums) The Postelles, who cite influences from Motown to Woody Allen, provide a modern take to the soundtrack of a 1950’s prom with a New York edge.
