PUMAROSA – Priestess (Video + Shura Remix)
Pumarosa have enlisted Shura to remix their striking debut track “Priestess”. Prior to the remix, “Priestess” debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and went on to reach #1 at HypeMachine. The London five-piece followed up by taking their incredible live show across the UK including a performance at London’s Scala which had NME raving “a totally killer performance that made me think of, variously: Death In Vegas, Jagwar Ma, Primal Scream, Jungle, Savages, Faithless and a whole lot of other intense, vibe-heavy bands.”
With production from Mercury-nominated Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Bat For Lashes, Toy), “Priestess” is a bold and bewitching introduction to Pumarosa. Building in momentum and atmospheric textures across 7 and half minutes, “Priestess” assimilates a strange mix of sounds, simultaneously drawn to the brooding, heavier songwriting of PJ Harvey or Patti Smith together with the groove-led and nocturnal electronics of The Knife and Cocteau Twins.
