Give Up

Give Up is the debut album by electronic pop duo The Postal Service. Released on February 19, 2003, it was the second Sub Pop Records release to receive platinum certification, and was Sub Pop’s best selling album since Nirvana’s Bleach. The album peaked at #114 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart in its initial release; the 2013 tenth-anniversary reissue of the album peaked at #45 in April 2013. As of January 2013, the album had sold 1.07 million copies.
The band began as a side project between electronic music artist Jimmy Tamborello and Death Cab for Cutie’s vocalist Ben Gibbard. They had previously worked together for a track on Dntel’s album Life Is Full of Possibilities.
The album was generally well received, and critics commented on its throwbacks to the eighties New Wave genre.
