“I have a strong will to love you for eternity.”
― Milan Kundera, Immortality
I was reading “Amazing Things Architects Make When They Aren’t Architecting” on Wired only yesterday. POSTMAN aren’t included, however, they should be. Let’s face it only wannabe architects could have made an LP like Home, a passionate, organic electronica masterpiece that shouts “we are architects, this is our world and it’s so important and we care to the point where we might sound slightly unhinged”. This is pop, this is art. clever, funny, knowing and naive all at the same time.
I want to inhabit your buildings. I need to cross your bridges. Take my hand and walk me down your roads. These are my feelings about their second and new LP “Home” which will be released on Cut Surface on the 20.10.2017 on limited edition vinyl. I don’t think you’ll hear a better record in 2017.
We are delighted to premiere the video for their new single “Islands” which is a perfect calling card for the album as a whole. It’s a nagging, lo-fi electrical paean to trans European expressways, unexpected beauty glimpsed from straight lines. From an aesthetic and artistic point of view, I’m filing this alongside The Blue Nile’s “A Walk Across the Rooftops” and Heaven 17’s “Penthouse And Pavements”. The video is by Postmodern Talking. Apt.
“In the world of highways
a beautiful landscape means:
an island of beauty connected
by a long line with other islands of beauty.“
