As has become something of a tradition, manx alternative (or ‘zebracore’) band Postcode have released a new record on guitarist Mikie’s birthday. The follow up to September’s ‘Year Of The Zebra – Part One’ EP, Part Two is out now from Small Bear Records and can be found below to hear.
Whereas the first part was lighter and more upbeat, ‘Year Of The Zebra – Part Two’ sees Postcode returning to more familiar terrain, darker and in places noisier. Recorded immediately after 2013’s ‘The ZebrATP EP’, the record continues in that vein, expanding in different directions and adding in different sounds, including keyboards, 12-string guitar and backwards delay. Once again the EP was recorded as a duo by founding members Marie Reynolds and Mikie Daugherty and can be downloaded on a pay-what-you-want basis, with a CDR version, containing extra tracks, also available.
