COLD PUMAS were born in Brighton, land of windswept piers, and have been abiding by the three Rs since their inception: Repetition, Repetition, Repetition.

The Autumn of 2012 saw the release of their freshman long-player Persistent Malaise, a triumvirate split between Faux Discx, Gringo Records and Italian Beach Babes, which was lauded by the popular press upon release. Now a four-piece, and three quarters London-based, they remain wedded to the construction of great cathedrals of heinous noise in which to focus upon a melancholy and hypnotic dusk, slowly descending. Funnelling kraut sensibilities, and tangents of Sonic Youth and Women, this metronomically grounded quartet of pedants are a dexterous and invigorating shower.

Cold Pumas will publish their sophomore effort The Hanging Valley to self-congratulatory applause on 1 July 2016. The long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s best-in-show Persistent Malaise offers at least 33.3% of its buffet to shimmering, inward, mulch-heavy ballads—A Change of Course, The Shaping of the Dream, Murmur of the Heart—showing a sensitivity that inevitably does nothing for the craft beer revolution. If truth be told, the remaining 66.6% threatens to look equally indifferent when served on a wooden board or beside a miniature stainless steel plant pot of hand-cut triple-cooked fries, but such is life.

Press for ‘Persistent Malaise’(2012):
“Its sureness and subtlety say more than a few gauche early pullquotes PITCHFORK
“The songs do this wonderful thing, where they just gnaw on you.” DAYTROTTER
“The methodically planned looseness of ‘Persistent Malaise’’s constant groove is thoroughly captivating.” LOUD AND QUIET
“I can’t think of a better album from a British band all year” NORMAN RECORDS
