Over ten years have passed since the small project consisting of Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and Jimmy Tamborello (DNTEL, Figurine) seemingly roared out of nowhere and burrowed deep into the ears of anyone who came in contact with the infectious electropop of The Postal Service. Of course, The Postal Service's music was much more than just electropop at all times. The power with which Jimmy and Ben evoked the indie rock zeitgeist of the early noughties made them such a phenomenon that artists like Ben Folds, Amanda Palmer, Streetlight Manifesto and Confide covered "Such Great Heights." A testament to the song's enchanting spark and melodic compactness

The band's sound is such a landmark that the term "Postal Service-esque" is an accepted adjective in the music world. It was impossible to predict how big "Give Up" would become, but by 2003 it was clear that these gentlemen had created something very special
