Each of the handful of times I’ve managed to catch Pumarosa live has been more fiercely glorious than the last, whether at home here in San Francisco or halfway across the nation in Austin. The East London outfit’s debut album, The Witch, is undoubtedly a spring arrivals I’m wildly excited for this year. Today, Pumarosa unveiled a new track off the forthcoming record, enticing us with sultry haunting, steady burning alt pop and noise rock on Dragonfly. The song come at us bold and ferocious. It reminds me of Siouxsie and the Banshees as well as Savages with some of Anna Calvi’s flaring guitar chords. It seems rather proper that Pumarosa’s first album is named The Witch. There’s always been something so bewitching about this band’s ruddy impassioned, darkly eerie music. The Witch arrives May 19th via Harvest Records, pre-order, here.
