The much anticipated release of Nero, Postina’s sophomore EP exemplifies the further musical development of the band's signature female vocal, electronic, AlternaPop Rock sound.
Since the release of their debut album The Road in early 2010, Postina has grown from 4 to 6 members welcoming the memorable electronica-synth counter melodies of Dylan Randolph in 2010 and the beautifully, dramatic, classical violin and vocal harmonies of Faith Eskola in 2011.
Recently named 2011 Minneapolis RAW Musician of The Year, Postina’s live performance now extends beyond music with painters joining them on stage during their set making their show even more visually compelling and experiential by bringing together two synergistic forms of art.
Postina’s CD release party will be at 7th St Entry, Friday January 27th, 2012, 8pm. Postina will be performing along with Dear Data, Charn and Blackbird Darlings, 18+ event, $5 cover.
Nero is available on iTunes, Amazon.com and CD Baby as well at Postina’s live shows.
