Postcard from the Badlands is a four member new music ensemble that explores the intersection of americana, modern chamber music, and instrumental rock. The ensemble creates layered and dusty sonic landscapes, inspired by the tension, melancholy, and elation of great film music.
The group has played together for four years in the Seattle area, appearing at venues like the Tractor Tavern and Washington Hall, performing in collaboration with visual artists and landscape artists, and composing for short film
