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.
