Pom Poko have got a new record out on January 15th.
Artists with new albums coming up are having to get even more creative again, and Pom Poko have settled on a ‘talk show’ to mark the release of Cheater.
Two days prior to release, the band will be the guests of their own surreal show, performing tracks from Cheater live now a European launch tour has been cancelled. Expect ‘Conan O’Brien/Letterman/Oprah meets The Muppet Show’.
“I think it’s very accurate to say that we wanted to embrace our extremes a bit more,” Ragnhild Fangel has said of the album.
“In the production process I think we aimed more for some sort of contrast between the meticulously written and arranged songs and a more chaotic execution and recording, but also let ourselves explore the less frantic parts of the Pom Poko universe.”
“I think both in the more extreme and painful way, and in the sweet and lovely way, this album is kind of amplified.”
