Sweden’s Postiljonen share beautiful new single “The Open Road”

POSTILJONEN THE OPEN ROAD

Sweden's Postiljonen share their glowing new single, taken from the group's forthcoming LP Reverie, out February 19, 2016. With the stellar recent singles they've unveiled from the new record, these guys are really staking their claim as the greatest remaining Swedish Balearic dream-pop group — RIP Air France and Korallreven — and the gorgeous, windswept "The Open Road" might be their most heartfelt and goosebump-inducing song yet (that "this could be easy / it's all in the past" bit literally gets me every time). Check the video, featuring footage the group shot on their recent tour of Asia, below, and grab the track now on iTunes:

premiere: Still Corners unveil dreamy new single Horses at Night

Edit: Probably not taken from the group's almost-finished third full-length, which is definitely due sometime in 2016. Visuals by Lucy Dyson:
