Why is this worthy of my time and money?: The founding members of Post War Years came together through a cock up in rehearsals; Simon was auditioning for a new guitarist and accidentally invited both Tom and Henry to the same audition; he was too embarrassed to send either home and the rest is history. The boys grew up together in Leamington Spa and now find themselves living together in east London. Fate has continued to be generous, after successful bouts on the unsigned scene raised their profile, breakthrough act White Lies chose them as tour support towards the end of 2008. The band weave a complex web of ambient alternative rock with distinct electronic aspects. However, the stand out feature of their music is a dark, powerful magic that's sprinkled over everything they do. At present they're co-headlining a short UK tour with label mates Wave Machines, followed by a smattering of more UK dates before they take their sound abroad. Catch them prior to their escapades cross the Atlantic and show some support for one of the most promising British bands doing the rounds on the underground circuit this year.
