Postcards are a Lebanese dream-pop type outfit who are releasing their debut record I'll Be Here In The Morning on Ruptured. Made up of four friends, this record is a great collection of lush vocals and simple to follow music scores that fit together like bees to honey. Available on vinyl LP and CD.

I preordered this record about three months ago, but now I come to write it, I'm not too sure why. In a world which is oversubscribed by 20-something year old boys moaning on about how they once smoked a cigarette and wished you were still here, it should be quite refreshing to hear a female-led indie rock band from Lebanon.
Track 4 on the record - A Broken Record - is kind of entirely that. It's pretty dull and very boring to listen to. Look, maybe I'm being a little cynical. The Beast from the East has just hit Britain, I'm cold, hungry and I'm not too sure if writing a review for a record which is quite clearly written to be played full blast in a field in summer is the best thing to be doing on a cold, dull and grey Tuesday morning in Leeds.
I'm going to try my best to give this record the praise it deserves.
Julia Sabra has a superb voice and it's perfect for an indie-rock record. Not only that, but the band quite clearly has a brilliant chemistry that shines through the more you listen to the album. Waves, Revolvers and Wide Awake (or 'Witde Awake' as it's written on my copy of the LP) are worlds above the rest of the tracks. But each to their own, and I'm sure you'll all come to your own conclusions.
A solid 8 if you're listening in summer, but a respectable 6 if you're listening in winter. Overall a nice 7/10. Enjoy.
