Pumarosa – Cecile

Following up their outstanding debut single Priestess, London experimental-rock five-piece Pumarosa just unveiled their sophomore track Cecile, which keeps the expectations on this band at the highest level. Released today via Chess Club / Mom + Pop and produced by Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Bat For Lashes, Toy), Cecile is a twisted, growing piece of art-rock that conveys Talking Heads’ vibes into a more dark, alluring path, reminiscent of some works of Scott Walker and Bowie and crowned by the high-pitched vocals of lead singer Isabel Munoz-Newsome. According to the band, Cecile is a “a mantra describing a sexual landscape.

Pumarosa’s music is strongly linked to Italy. Last summer, Pumarosa was offered a residency in “the cavernous disused cinema of an Italian surrealist, situated within the cliffs of Calabria.” The guys drove non-stop through Italy, eventually reaching their destination (we can assure you, it’s not an easy task) and starting working on new songs in the in the sweltering Italian summer.¬†Calabrian air and food must have done them good if these are the results.
