Three singles in, and five-piece Pumarosa are the breakthrough band on everyone’s lips – and deservedly so. The Londoners, who are currently recording their debut album with Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand/Bat For Lashes) continue to demonstrate that they can do no wrong with “Honey”, the psychedelic follow-up to the dance-fused “Priestess” and Fleetwood Mac-esque “Cecile”.
The track was given its first play on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens and will undoubtedly see their stock rise once more. A more guitar-based cut from the band than we’ve previously heard before, “Honey” demonstrates a different side of Pumarosa, which bodes well for their forthcoming LP to be released on Fiction Records next year. The intro has shades of (and don’t shoot me for this) Coldplay’s “One I Love” before building up to a gripping outro of guitars.
Isabel Munoz-Newsome and co. are about to embark on an extensive world tour, starting in North America before returning to Europe. A full list of tour dates is available here.
Three singles in and I’m making a bold prediction. If Pumarosa don’t ‘pull a Wolf Alice’ in 2017, I will present Match of the Day in my underpants. Listen to “Honey” below.
