Late last year, I happened to stumble upon Postiljonen’s glowing, ambient-pop interpretation of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know”, dubbed “All That We Had Was Lost”. Since then, the Scandinavian trio have continued to build upon these ethereal, handcrafted sounds with plans to release their debut full-length, Skyer, on July 22nd via Best Fit Recordings.
“Atlantis”, one of the album’s 10 new tracks, definitely deserves your attention if not for the weightless and enchanting soundscapes, then for the excellent utilization of an uncommon and frankly underused instrument: the sexy saxophone. So, ask yourself: Do you like it sax-y?
