Track Of The Day 21/6 – Black Pumas

'Black Moon Rising'

Black Pumas began as an attempt to do something new.

Grammy-winning guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada had a vision in mind, but when he met 27-year-old newcomer Eric Burton it became a reality.

Murky, hip-hop leaning beats aligned to songwriting that melts together folk and rock textures, the Austin duo hit on an addictive formula right at the first writing session.

The duo's debut album is out now, and with UK dates slated for Autumn it's set to be a massive year for Black Pumas.

We're able to premiere the full video for album highlight 'Black Moon Rising', a woozy jammer with an impeccably designed chorus.

Soothing and addictive, the visuals are a slick, stylish counterpart to Black Pumas' potent vision.

Tune in now.
