From the dizzying heights of ‘Heaven’ to the crushing lows of ‘Fall Apart’, the stage for Pumarosa’s second album – ‘Devastatation’ – is set. The band took the work to producer John Congleton in LA, whose production on the likes of St Vincent, Chairlift and Angel Olsen helped convince them he could bring these songs and life-changing experiences into existence.
What’s emerged is a powerfully uplifting album, confirming Pumarosa as one of the UK’s most inventive and fearless bands. Working through questions of mortality, sexuality and strength, ‘Devastation’ is an exhilarating and suitably-unpredictable affirmation of life.
