Even though very much in their infancy, London based Pumarosa show that a butt load of effort pays off when developing a sound of your own. Their third short play release plays out post-indie rock with worldly wisdom, casting off the shackles of childish wonder with fond reflection. Vinyl released on Fiction.
Some albums are born almost momentarily, hammered out over a snappy series of jams. Others are left to marinate and stew along with personal progressions; Pumerosa's debut has done the latter. Enveloping their emotional and impassioned breakthrough into the public consciousness is the fantastic debut - The Witch.
Tipped to reach dizzying heights by BBC 6 Music and The Line of Best Fit, Pumarosa's self-titled EP is a statement of intent. Especially after its opener, a nearly-8-minute-long crescendo of of gliding vocals, propulsive beats and waves of saxophone. Arcade Fire-esque indie rock at its finest.
Pumarosa are new enough that this is only their second single. But their dance-angled rock sounds like it has plenty of cutting-edge hit potential, so maybe jump onboard now! Cecile could accompany a summer yacht party, at least up until the point of the relatively heavy instrumental breakdown. This 12” single (on white vinyl) is out on Chess Club.
With their debut on Chess Club, Pumarosa are announcing their prowess to listeners worldwide. Produced by Dan Carey, Priestess combines influences from slow, introspective dub electronica with catchy guitar hooks and intense vocals to create a spiritual and industrial track: the tension keeps on building in this excellent 12”. Out on limited white vinyl.
