Manhattan garage pop-rock quartet The Postelles will follow up their White Night EP with their self-titled debut album (out October 12 via Astralwerks), which was co-produced by Albert Hammond, Jr. of The Strokes. (Meanwhile, Hammond’s bandmate Nick Valensi kept busy by working on Sia’s We Are Born.) And to whet your appetite in the months leading up to the release of the guys’ LP, we’ve got the premiere of their “White Night” music video after the jump.

Max Lanman directed the “White Night” clip, which hops between scenes of the band playing in a dark room and a young woman inviting us into her apartment to watch her change clothes before walking out for a snowy trek through the city.

“We’re so excited to release this album, to get out there and continue to tour and share our music and hopefully help some people have a little fun while we’re at it,” says Postelles frontman Daniel Balk. And what’s more fun than a band that emulates the best of ’60s British Invasion acts—think The Kinks meets Herman’s Hermits (reminder, though: these gents, all under the age of 22, are from NYC)—while maintaining a current, original pop-rock sensibility?

Balk and his crew found themselves touring with Alberta Cross earlier this month as well as playing Bonnaroo (see pics of their set at the fest on the band’s official site). Next up: a gig at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on July 28.
