Post War Years

Post War Years

 London, England, GBR

Henry, Simon, Tom & Fred are Post War Years, together they have been writing and playing their danceable, synth-beat driven sound in clubs and basements up & down the country honing their skilful musicianship on the live scene. 2011 sees their return with a freshly written & recorded album.


Post War Years are Henry Riggs, Simon Critten, Tom O'Hare, and Fred McLaren. The four met growing up in Leamington Spa, where they discovered a mutual love of music.

On stage, the band have an exhilarating presence. Henry, Simon, and Tom array themselves before the audience, confidently switching between guitars, basses, and synthesizers, and sharing vocal duties as each song demands. Driving it all is Fred's energetic and precise drumming, which arguably forms the core of the band's sound; providing them with a solid, but not static, foundation on which to stack their intricately woven arrangements.

Post War Years' first single from their upcoming second album is titled 'All Eyes' and is due for release in late November on Labour of Love Records.
