Postcards From Mars is an alternative indie folk band based around Dutch producer and composer Bart van Dalen.
Formed as a side project, Bart wrote and self-released 4 digital EP’s throughout 2013/2014. Working with a small team of creative friends and musicians, Bart independently recorded and released the Postcards From Mars debut album 'GROWTH' in April 2016.
‘GROWTH’ features a collection of personal songs about growing older, longing to travel and choosing who you want to be in life. Challenging himself to explore unknown territories with his guitar and writing songs along the way has been the main drive behind the songs and has greatly influenced the sound. The album received several loving press reviews and single 'Breathe' was featured in an advertising campaign for JEEP.
Postcards From Mars' sound can be described as a mixture of Patrick Watson, Paul Simon and Death Cab for Cutie. Bart dreams to take his music abroad and play for an international audience. In 2016, this became a reality when Bart was asked to perform his songs at the New York Fashion Week show of Amsterdam brand Scotch & Soda.
For live performances, Bart teams up with several talented musicians and friends. A 5-piece band now accompanies Bart on stage to translate the moody arrangements into an energetic live set.
