New wave breezy indie-rock for fans of Teleman, Blur, Happyness and pavement It’s indie guitar pop, without wishing to damn it with faint praise.

Pumarosa Priestess Limited 12" debut single on Chess Club from London's Pumarosa. 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, the track is neatly categorized by the band as “industrial spiritual”. Musically, too, ‘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.
