Owl City can retire now — the real thing is back.

Synth-pop duo the Postal Service, whose one and only album, “Give Up,” influenced a generation of bedroom producers with its catchy but complicated songs, on Monday morning released its first new music in 10 years. Randall Roberts from latimes.com called “A Tattered Line of String,” the song features singer Ben Gibbard‘s typically infectious vocal melodies and programmer Jimmy Tamborello‘s dance-along rhythms. It arrives via the forthcoming 10th anniversary reissue of “Give Up,” and is one of two new tracks to be featured on the collection.

But last month, the group unveiled a new website, and soon thereafter they announced a reunion gig at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in April. That news was followed by more festival dates.

And now comes “A Tattered Line of String,” and it’s as though they never left. As catchy as anything from their 2003 debut, the song suggests a lost Pet Shop Boys or New Order track, all plasticine joy and compactly organized synth rhythms. Lyrically, it traces a rendezvous in New York, and a seemingly futile attempt to keep the tryst in check while Tamborello weaves in typically catchy counter-melodies and arrangements.

The Postal Service have updated their website to simply read, “The Postal Service 2013,” all but confirming the rumors of their impending reunion.

Update: According to Billboard, the band will appear at Coachella and reissue their solo album, 2003′s Give Up. Additional dates and festival appearances are “also in the works.”

Earlier this month, BrooklynVegan reported that a reunion between Ben Gibbard and Dntel’s celebrated collaboration was “in the works.” No additional details were provided, but BrooklynVegan included a tag for “Coachella” in the article, suggesting that the duo could appear at the Indio, CA festival this April.
