About the bands:
Postcards is a dream pop/shoegaze trio formed in 2012 in Beirut, Lebanon. Their music is defined by hushed vocals floating over expansive sonic spaces that shift between harsh noise and ambient soundscapes. They are currently working on their untitled sophomore album, to be released in late 2019.
I’ll Be Here In The Morning (Ruptured/T3 Records/Cargo Records) is their fourth release and first full-length album which finds the band working with long-time producer Fadi Tabbal of Tunefork Studios. The album’s lyrics reveal a young woman caught between hope and despair, and the music complements that dichotomy with instrumentation that nods to dream pop, noise rock, shoegaze and jangle pop.
The album comes after 3 well-received EPs: Lakehouse (2013), What Lies So Still (2015) and Here Before (2017). The band has been regularly touring Europe, the UK and the Middle East since 2014 and has also opened for bands like Beirut (2014) and Angus and Julia Stone (2015). Initially formed as a quartet with their friend Rany Bechara, the band now operates as a trio.
Julia Sabra: Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass Synth, Synth and Organ
Pascal Semerdjian: Drums, Sampler, Bass Synth and Backing Vocals
Marwan Tohme: Guitar, Bass and Backing Vocals
THE BUNNY TYLERS
The Bunny Tylers is a duo from Lebanon whose core consists of two prominent musicians from the Beirut scene: singer-songwriter and guitarist Charbel Haber, and multi-instrumentalist and producer Fadi Tabbal.
The group is a natural amalgamation of the prolific career of the two long-time collaborators, fusing Haber’s songwriting sensibility with Tabbal’s technical and instrumental know-how and tying musical loose ends from both musicians’ past work.
Initially formed to score Nadim Tabet and Karine Wehbe’s video essay “Summer ’91”, they continued working in film scoring, art installations and their own releases.
Their latest album “Chance Meetings” (Ruptured), recorded with the help of Benoit de Villeneuve in Paris, sets Haber’s bleak songs and sorrowful voice against a backdrop of beats and textures spawned from the pair’s post-punk, ambient and drone roots. The result is a drug-hazy polaroid of murder mysteries and misspent youth, the last remnants of a Film Noir set in abandoned Lebanese coastal resorts.
