SOTD – Atlantis by Postiljonen

Oh baby, do I have some mesmerizing electronic music for ya today, folks. Somewhere along the progression of electronic music over the past decade, artists started discovering that adding a soulful saxophone to pretty much any song made listeners’ mouths water. With its enthralling and powerful saxophone and generally slow tempo, this song redefines the word trance. Depending on the mood of the listener, this song could either put you to bed (in a good way, of course), or get you hyped up to go out for a night of fun.

Postiljonen, or the Swedish word for mailmen, identifies as a dream pop (very appropriately named genre, by they way) band from Stockholm, Sweden. The band is known for producing music in a very unique way by incorporating sound bites from different movies such as “The Princess Bride” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Most of their songs, similar to this one, are atmospheric, driven by synths and sounding like the soundtrack to a dream. After listening to this song I often feel detached from whatever I was doing prior or whatever I was about to do, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Take a step back today and embrace the message that Postiljonen has said they want their music to evoke, that being to become “nostalgic dreamers.”
