Pumarosa dive into pop on hallucinogenic second song "Cecile"

31 March 2016, 12:00 | Written by Laurence Day

Psychedelic quintet Pumarosa have revealed "Cecile", their follow up to the bewitching seven-and-a-half-minute opener "Priestess".

The single is out now via Chess Club/Mom + Pop. The band describe "Cecile" as “a mantra describing a sexual landscape.”

From the get-go it rockets skywards, with pummelling beats battering the airwaves and wriggly riffs slicing into the stratosphere. "Cecile" has got a poppier bent than Pumarosa's woozy debut, with lots of rolling melodic waves, but it's still as hallucinogenic as its predecessor, transporting you into an ethereal realm of euphoric unreality. Dan Carey has once more joined Pumarosa on production duties.

The band have a bunch of festival dates confirmed, including a set at Brighton's Great Escape. Ahead of their summer showcases, they'll play the Royal Albert Hall on 20 April with The Vaccines and Everything Everything (as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust bill), and then hit up London's ICA on 7 May.

Pumarosa are one of our five Ones To Watch for 2016 - read our feature and find out why.
