Albany, NY’s Postage are a four-piece group specializing in loud, abrasive, melodic pop punk for anyone who loves bands like Leatherface, Bad Religion, Good Riddance, and Lagwagon, and the group are releasing their newest track, “80-85.”
The song is a hardcore-tinged, power-pop love song comparing a significant other to some of the members’ favorite records.
Postage’s Mike Moak chats more about the new release, saying it was the first song he wrote for Postage before the band started.
“I was playing it at Fest’s and shows when I’d be booked for solo/acoustic sets. People immediately started singing the chorus before the song had even been recorded; I think that’s a first for us. It’s just a catchy love song, listing off a bunch of good records.
“Annie Pressman did the guest vocal on the bridge. ’80-85′ is also the title from a Bad Religion release off their early discography; when I was a kid, I use to cherish that CD and stare at the cover and just admire how fucking punk and cool it was … and how great the songs are. I loved it, and I still do.”
