Norwegian 4-piece Pom Poko might just be your new favourite band. Having signed to Bella Union earlier this year, the band have today shared their first single, Follow The Lights, which can be streamed below. Sounding like no one else right now, a debut album is pencilled in for early 2019.

The band tried to sum up their influences: “(West)-African music like Oumou Sangaré and Ali Farka Touré; indie bands like Vulfpeck, Palm and KNOWER; noisy high-energy bands such as Hella and Death Grips; and music with interesting lyrics such as Jenny Hval and Nick Drake. We've all done lots of improvised music in the past, and I think that shapes the way we play, even though the tunes are not improvised. We like when new and strange things happen in an old song, and that music can change over time by being played live because that removes predictability and the ‘recipe’ that some genres of music have.”
