On May 30, Daniel Balk, the lead singer from the indie rock group, The Postelles, chatted via telephone with Digital Journal.
He spoke about their upcoming show at Webster Hall in New York City, as well as their new album “And It Shook Me,” which they released on April 23. “We recorded fourteen songs for the album and the song selection process was tough since we loved every song on there. It took two years to record and we spent a lot of time on every song,” he said. “We hope that the fans enjoy this album. We are really proud of the project and every single track on there.”
Daniel noted that the band took the most chances on their single “Heavy Eyes” since it involved a lot of instruments from mandolin to a grand piano. “It took a while to find the right sound. The last few weeks we recorded the song and it ended up being one of the best-sounding songs on the album,” he said.
He listed “Parallel Love” as his personal favorite song on the album since it contains well-written lyrics and he revealed that “Running Red Lights” was the first song that they wrote and recorded for the album.
Throughout their career in music, The Postelles have shared the stage with such noteworthy groups as The Kooks, Fun, The Constellations and Vampire Weekend. “The guys at Fun are very kind and they were really easy to tour with,” he shared.
On June 11, The Postelles will be playing at New York City’s Webster Hall. “We are going to play our new album, which we are really excited about. We love playing in New York and it’s a great venue too,” he remarked. “That room is new but that theater has been around for a while, so we are really excited.”
Daniel shared that their latest CD was inspired musically by such artists as Fleetwood Mac and The Smiths and subsequently noted that he was fortunate enough to do a duet with Alex Winston on “Pretend It’s Love.” “That song worked out amazing. Alex was incredible and a really great songwriter too,” he said.
