Pumarosa - "Dragonfly"
I've been anticipating London-based five-piece band Pumarosa's debut album since 2015's sprawling "Priestess," and after sharing three more tracks on their self-titled 2016 EP, the band are now ready to announce their debut album. The Witch will be out May 19, and the announcement comes with a new track, "Dragonfly," which is also the album opener.
It's another slice of edgy, brooding, slow-building excellence, lead singer Isabel's bold vocals soaring over the ever more frantic guitars. "We are so used to protecting ourselves from each other that when the time comes to be open, sometimes we can’t do it," the band explains. "'Dragonfly' is about shedding this armour.”—Alex Gardner
