Pom Poko / Announce London Scala Headline Show, BBC 6 Music Album of the Day
Fresh from playing a raucous and sold out album launch party at London’s Shacklewell Arms, Norwegian noise-makers Pom Poko have sold out their headline show at The Lexington in April and have now added a Scala headline show to their UK tour in October.
The band will play Scala on Weds 23rd October and tickets for the new show are now on sale HERE.
Today’s tour news coincides with an Album of the Day feature on BBC 6 Music for the band’s debut album, ‘Birthday’, which is out now on Bella Union.
Between the Norwegian quartet’s sweetly punky melodies and disco-fried art-rock eruptions, a spirit of free-firing, balls-out individuality courses through their exhilarating debut.
Watch / Share the official video for current single ‘Crazy Energy Night’ via YouTube. Stream / Share previously released album tracks via Soundcloud: ‘Follow The Lights’ & ‘My Blood’. Find ‘Birthday’ in full HERE.
