It was just released in the US last month, but Postcards‘ new LP I’ll Be Here In The Morning has already won acclaim in their home country of Lebanon and the surrounding region. According to Arab News, it was one of the best alternative albums released in the Middle East last year. Writes the site, “The young Lebanese four-piece built their reputation with a series of excellent English-language alt-folk EPs. But their debut album was a huge leap forward, embracing dream-pop, synths, electric guitars and noise. The first single, ‘Bright Lights,’ was a post-punk anthem for the disconnected, built on distorted guitar lines and singer Julia Sabra’s beguiling vocals. The haunting ‘Wrinkles’ touched on bare-bones trip-hop, while powerful slow-burner ‘Waves”’ showed the band’s evolving sense of dynamics and growing self-assuredness.” Read the feature here.
