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

WHILE CURRENT MEMBERS OF POSTINA WOULD GLADLY TATTOO EACH OTHER’S NAMES ON THEIR BODIES, THIS INDIE POPROCK BAND HAS SURVIVED ITS SHARE OF BREAKUPS AND EMBRACES THEM FULLY WITH A NEW EP, WRITE A BETTER END.

POSTINA’S MUSIC IS A COLLABORATION OF EACH MEMBERS DIVERSE MUSICAL INFLUENCES - BETH RENEE (VOCALS, SYNTH), ANDY ROOT (GUITARS), RYAN MASTERSON (BASS), FAITH ESKOLA (VOCALS, VIOLIN AND MANDOLIN) AND DAVE DONOVAN (DRUMS).

ANDY ROOT GOT HIS MUSICAL START IN HIS HOMETOWN OF SAN DIEGO AND DAVE DONOVAN HAD A GUEST APPEARANCE PLAYING HARMONICA WITH WEEZER. THE TWO FOUNDING MEMBERS MET IN 2008 AND POSTINA WAS BORN. ALL BUT ONE OF POSTINA’S MEMBERS CONNECTED THROUGH CRAIGSLIST.

THE MINNEAPOLIS-BASED BAND WAS A FINALIST IN THE BASILICA BLOCK PARTY BATTLE OF THE BANDS IN 2009 AND RELEASED THEIR DEBUT EP THE ROAD IN 2010, THEIR SOPHOMORE RELEASE NERO IN 2011 AND THE SINGLE “FALLING AND CATCHING” IN 2012.

AFTER TAKING SOME TIME OFF TO “RESET”, POSTINA IS BACK WITH A FEW LINE UP CHANGES AND A DIFFERENT TAKE ON THE EARLY YEARS OF THE BAND’S SOUND - NEW VOCALIST BETH RENEE (HER FIRST BAND), RYAN MASTERSON (FORMER BASS PLAYER FOR UMBRELLA SEQUENCE) AND FAITH ESKOLA (PLAYED VIOLIN ON TOUR WITH SARA GROVES).

POSTINA TRACKED SONGS FOR WRITE A BETTER END AT RIVERROCK STUDIOS IN NE MINNEAPOLIS AND WORKED WITH BRENT SIGMETH (LITTLEBIG STUDIO /PACHYDERM STUDIO/NIRVANA) TO MIX THE RECORD.

¡VIVA POSTINA!
