Pom Poko debut new song ‘Praise’

There’s just so much fun to be had with the Norwegian’s art-rock band’s gloriously unhinged debut, an eccentric work that’s no slave to algorithm.” NME

“Pom Poko go for broke on their debut album, throwing everything they have against the wall with” TLOBF

“..a debut full of fired-up, spiky pop hits” DIY

Last year Norwegian quartet Pom Poko released their debut album Birthday on Bella Union to much critical acclaim and continued to gain adoration from their raucous live shows. With their upcoming headline performances in New York and Chicago + performances at New York’s New Colossus Festival and Austin’s SXSW Festival, Pom Poko have today shared a brand new single titled ‘Praise’.

Of the song, the band express that… “the idea for Praise was made in a tiny cabin in the woods, with no electricity and a lot of smoke from the fireplace clouding our the songwriting. The idea was to have a fast paced tune that was a bit wonky rhythmically, and it kept evolving during our touring in 2019 until it became a regular part of our setlist as Praise. Lyrically it’s about how you can “achieve anything you want” as long as you have a clear goal, and that you’re expected to always try to be the best version of yourself.”
