Postcards From Jeff release their debut album Modern Language June 2015. An elegy for cinema revealing stolen glimpses of another world, another life. Each track a cinematic snapshot, shifting and shimmering in a flickering film light, capturing the timeless claustrophobia and psychodramas of small town suburbia. A soundtrack to a world wrapped in a rich language of isolation, of disconnection and delicious melancholia, where characters reach out to connect but miscommunicate with every step, staring into the darkness from the tree lined streets, out across the windswept moors and epic cloudscapes to a coming storm.
Underpinned by a Lost In Translation-style isolation or a self-proclaimed “perennial yearning for pastures new and greener grass,” elements of far flung folk, electronica, country, krautrock and pop are seamlessly brought together in a worldlier embrace.
A dreamy ride that gets inside of you in a good way. This is a new type of dreampop, folks. Get on board, take a journey.
In Your Speakers
Taking vast almost cinematic synth beds and layering them with indie melodies and a gentle and somewhat understated vocal, this is dreampop with expansiveness.
I Love Pie
A Brooding Indie Pop masterclass.
Somewhere poetry meets pop, electronica and folk dosado, film and reality collide and Postcards From Jeff takes all these inspirations and weaves them into new stories, new songs, new roads.
Support comes from U.V
U.V. are an electronic duo comprising singer Zandra Klievens and writer producer Jonjo Feather.
They spent their formative months writing and performing in Berlin before returning to Manchester UK mid 2013 where they began recording in their home studio. They released two singles in 2014 followed by a 5 track EP, all releases garnered widespread critical acclaim including endorsements from the likes of DJ’s Tom Ravenscroft at BBC6 – who added the single ‘Cuts’ to his Recommends List- and Niall Carver at RTE who chose the E.P. as his Pick Of The Week.
The duo have been favourably compared with the likes of Massive Attack and Cocteau Twins but have a sound entirely their own, variously described as : “Haunting lullaby motifs in a noir framing” and “ Mysterious, beautifully macabre and eerily enchanting”.
In 2015 U.V. signed to 1M records and are currently working on their debut album.
