Pom Poko announce “This Is Our House” EP out 28th January via Bella Union

Share new track “Enduro Corner”

Having released their album Cheater a year ago to much acclaim, and soon to arrive in the UK for a bunch of live shows, Norway’s Pom Poko today announce news of a brilliant new 4-track EP This Is Our House released 28th January via Bella Union. Of the EP the band say: “This EP is both an afterthought and a peek into the future for us. We are combining new recordings of old songs, old recordings of old songs and new recordings of new songs on it, and it’s kind of a demonstration of all the different identities we feel that Pom Poko can have; hammering fuzz-rock grooves, soft and yearning melodies and deconstructed noisy explorations.”

Now, Pom Poko have shared the EP’s opening track “Enduro Corner”, listen below:

Pom Poko has built this immersive ensemble that starts with the brighter hits before the sweeping melodies cascade across the atmospherical creation and consumes the audience. Sweet vocal harmonies and this dynamic delivery bring this influx of emotion into the center of the mighty track.

Pom Poko create these dazzling masterpiece’s and this new single can be added to that long list of stellar compositions.

On the track the band say: “This is a song we recorded and finished in Italy, when we were there quite a while ago. We were working very hard, lots of hours every day, and watching movies almost every night. We watched a movie called Free Solo, about a guy climbing a huge mountain without any ropes, and Enduro Corner was the name of a part of the route he was climbing. This is quite a soft and mellow song for us, but we tried to shape it in an interesting way without it becoming too soft and without ruining the nice nerve we thought we had created.”
