Pom Poko

Mix sing-song vocals with intense grooves, bouncy guitars, and absurd riffs and there you have the pure Norwegian punky sweetness of Pom Poko and their new single ‘Jazz Baby’ which is out today.


The new track is an eclectic concoction of crowd pleasing vocal hooks, 70’s disco riffs, and raucous rhythmic changes all of which combine to make this band a feat to behold live.


Listen to ‘Jazz Baby’ on Soundcloud & Spotify.


Despite only forming 8 months ago, Pom Poko are on a rapid accent. The Norwegian quartet released their first official single, ‘It's A Trap’, back in January of this year and went on to be voted No.5 on the Norwegian music industry's list of promising artists for 2017.


Since then they’ve been busy playing to packed out crowds, including particularly memorable showcases at Trondheim Calling and by:Larm, and are now set to play an extensive run of festivals across Scandinavia this summer. ‘It’s A Trap’ received heavy radio rotation in their home country as well as support from further afield including the likes of The Line of Best Fit (“thrilling hook-laden take on art rock”), and Phil Taggart at BBC Radio 1 (“Add them to your list. Write it on your shoes. Write it on your forehead. Tell everybody that you’ve found your favourite new band, Pom Poko”).


With their UK live debut on the horizon (the band play The Great Escape festival in Brighton next month), 2017 is shaping up to be just as promising for Pom Poko as their Norwegian contemporaries predicted.


‘Jazz Baby’ is available digitally now. Watch the animated video for ‘It’s A Trap’ on YouTube here.
