Postiljonen


Postiljonen is a dream pop trio hailing from Scandinavia.
They are the next big thing in the dreampop world.

The band emerged quietly back in September 2011 and is composed of Norwegian vocalist Mia Bøe alongside Swedish multi-instrumentalists Daniel Sjörs and Joel Nyström Holm.

Their new album, Skyer, was released late last month.
You can stream it from here, just to give you the tease so you'll be ordering your own copy.

After releasing a handful of online only singles in their native Scandinavia (including the heartbreaking interpretation of Whitney Houston’s classic ‘How Will I Know’, renamed to ‘All That We Had Is Lost’) Postiljonen have managed to create a highly characteristic sound, where ethereal and alluring vocals are interwoven in a mystical, ambient, dreamy and lovable expression.

They have been compared to the likes of M83, Air France, Sigur Ros, jj and Cocteau Twins.

Let's get to the music, this group has to be heard. They are simply amazing.


First up check out this awesome video for an awesome song.
