Postina / Bio

“Postina’s contagiously hooky and energetic pop approach to rock ’n’ roll paired with balmy female vocals make liking Postina an easy jump. It’s likable music, with solid lyricism and a radio-friendly ease and bounce that explains why the band was RAW Minneapolis’ 2011 “Musician of the Year.” - Christopher Bahn, A.V. Club Twin Cities

Postina’s IndiePop Rock sound is defined by dynamic female lead vocals, well-crafted guitar melodies, catchy electronica-synth, complemented by violin, mandolin and prominent bass lines. Postina’s live performance extends beyond music with a painter joining them on stage during their set adding a visual component to the show, bringing together two different forms of art.

Postina released their debut EP, The Road in March 2010. The Road is a collection of six original songs, each a story
inspired by personal struggle or triumph conveying deep emotion and the band’s determination to experience the fullness of life. Nero, Postina’s sophomore EP released in October of 2011 exemplifies the further musical development of the band’s signature female vocal, electronic, IndiePopRock sound. The 2nd track on the album “Heart in Mine” was featured in the Twin Cities Film Festival trailer in Sept ember 2010. Postina released the single “Falling and Catching” in September of 2012 and will finish recording the rest of their 3rd EP in 2013. The upcoming EP promises to be the band’s most progressive record yet.

The Road, Nero and Falling and Catching are available on iTunes. Postina has performed at First Ave’s 7th St Entry, The Fine Line Music Cafe, The Cabooze, Turf Club, 400 Bar, Whiskey Junction, Lake Harriet Bandshell, Club Underground, O’Gara’s, Uptown Bar, Acadia Café, Bogart’s, Suburban World Theater, Lee’s Liquor Lounge, the Plaza Palooza music festival, Nomad World Pub, Amsterdam Bar, The Uptown Art Fair, The Crooked Pint, as well as the RAW Minneapolis Showcase & RAW Minneapolis Awards Show and Harriet Brewing’s 2nd anniversary party.

Postina was also featured on WCCO's Saturday Morning Show in January of 2012. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oq54MMB9Bjk
