Bio

Melbourne’s POSTBLUE are an indie/rock group that formed in 2012.

Originating in Byron Bay, POSTBLUE built a grassroots following across a series of DIY releases, enveloping fans with grunge-driven sounds and testing their own musical boundaries.

2014 saw the release of debut album “I Hope They’re Praying For Me” (Poison City Records). The record saw great success with the band’s Australian rendition of a 90’s alt-rock revival. The album’s melodies and melancholy lyrics lead POSTBLUE to triple j support, heavy touring and shows with TITLE FIGHT (USA), THE SMITH STREET BAND and VIOLENT SOHO as well as performances at POISON CITY WEEKENDER and SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS.

Advancing through various genres, POSTBLUE’s discography reads as the genesis of its members Riley McEvoy, Jordan Saul and Joe Paine, both as long-time friends and musical experimenters.

The group’s 2015 release “Glow Like Crazy” was recorded at Studios 301 with Simon Cohen (JOY, Asta, M-Phases) and had POSTBLUE divert and expand on their musical foundations, shocking fans and further signifying the band’s openness to change. ‘Glow Like Crazy’ took things a lot slower and hazier, with an obvious nod towards shoe gaze, showcasing the breadth of POSTBLUE’s artistic development and ambition.

In July 2016, POSTBLUE partnered with Melbourne producer Steven Schram (San Cisco, Paul Kelly, Clairy Browne & The Bangin’ Rackettes) to record a brand new single ’Love To Praise You’. The track strives to redefine POSTBLUE’s new musical identity.

Coupling ethereal sounds with indie-rock and roll, ‘Love To Praise You’ is POSTBLUE blending contemporary elements with their 90’s rock past to deliver a smashing track that will surprise and intrigue fans as well as usher in a plethora of new listeners.

POSTBLUE’s refusal to stay genre-comfortable emits a “we’re doing this for us” attitude, which is as refreshing as it is unusual to see in the current musical landscape. With influences across the entire alternative spectrum, POSTBLUE’s dedication to reaching their potential has cemented them as an unpredictable and truly exciting artist.
