Post-Life seems like an apt name for this new band whose members have been or are currently in some formidable indie outfits. Brianna Meli (guitar and lead vocals) was formerly in Palm Reader, Erik Felix (drums) is also currently drumming for So Many Wizards, and Greg Shilton (Bass) and Michael Reyder (guitar / lead guitar) are formerly of Peter Pants and Heller Keller.
Post-Life has a big sound with elements of shoe gaze, punk, 90's new wave, proto punk and art rock all smooshed together into a powerful and engaging sound. I talked to them briefly after they played a great set at the Smell in Los Angeles. The conversation went from My Bloody Valentine, 90's Emo, Cocteau Twins, Gwen Stefani and Third Eye Blind (?)
Look out for their upcoming record on Big Joy Records-
and an upcoming gig at Pehrspace on May 3rd.
