Bio

Postblue was formed in the summer of 2012 by friends Riley, Jordan, Joe and Alex. After several rehearsals, four songs were written that would be put out on a free online demo, recorded and mixed in one day and released the same night. The following six months saw the band play shows locally in Byron Bay and travel frequently up to Brisbane. After a small line up change, acquiring a new bass player, Liam, the band began writing for a debut EP entitled ‘Lap Year’ which was recorded in October 2012, and released in December. The start of 2013 saw Postblue venture out on their first East coast Australian Tour, with good friends from Newcastle, Distance. Over the last year and a half Postblue has been lucky enough to share the stage with some well established national and international acts including Basement, Title Fight, The Swellers, Brutality Will Prevail, Bane, The Smith St Band, DZ Deathrays and Violent Soho. Drawing influence from such bands as The Smashing Pumpkins, Silverchair, Bush and Failure, Postblue offers the listener an interesting mix of 90’s grunge, rock and emo.

I'm not sur...

I'm not sure how many people remember Failure, but I know you guys do, which makes me love this song even more. A rocking '90s-inspired jam right here.

Already a short....

Already a short.fast.loud. favorite, this could have easily come out of the portland and seattle scenes back in the early 90s. Great balance of power pop and grunge sounds.

I got a Military...

I got a Military Strongman vibe from that opening riff but it's got a bit more punch and circle-pit ready energy.
