Around this time last year, we spoke
with "industrial spiritual" band Pumarosa
as they were setting out on tour to support Glass Animals
. Since the release of one of their first singles, "Priestess," this was a band that immediately caught our ear. And now, they're proving that a whole lot can change in just a year. They're finally out with their debut full length, The Witch,
and they have some headlining shows coming up in New York at Baby's All Right on October 10th and LA at Resident on October 12th. You'll also be able to catch them at Austin City Limits and III Points Festival.
As the band gears up for tour, we thought it'd be fun to have them put together a playlist of all their favorite songs to listen to while traveling on the road. Some of their choices are... Pretty eclectic (Acid Mothers Temple, Flamingods, Shabaka and the Ancestors, and more). You can definitely hear how these artists influence Pumarosa's diverse, worldly style, and now you can listen along with them. See what the band had to say about each song below.
