Pom Poko - Birthday

Pom Poko - Birthday

19.99

Pom Poko release their debut album, Birthday, via Bella Union. Between the quartet’s sweetly punky melodies and disco-fried art-rock eruptions, a spirit of free-firing, balls-out individuality courses through this exhilarating debut. The band’s own bad-ass-ery is writ large on album opener Theme1, which locates a sweet spot between Deerhoof and Battles as singer Ragnhild issues loud, clear rebel yells over Martin’s math-rock guitar. Singles My Blood and Follow The Lights layer seductively sweet melodies over squalls of sound, while the funk-fired My Work Is Full of Art offers a kind of mission statement: “I’ll just let freaky surround me,” sings Fangel.
