POM POKO – New track “Leg Day” out now on Bella Union


Renowned for their raucous live shows, Norwegian quartet Pom Poko today share new track Leg Day alongside its video. Having released their debut album Birthday earlier this year through Bella Union, this new track heralds news of further UK shows, including a run of dates with Ezra Furman and follows previously sold-out shows at The Shacklewell Arms and The Lexington in London. Watch and listen to “Leg Day” HERE.

Presenting some context, the band explain; “Leg Day is one of our personal live favorites, because it’s so dance-y and usually gets our pulse up quite a bit. The song was written over the course of a year, while we figured out how it should be played, before we found its final form as a Frankenstein distorted disco song about superheros and appreciating one’s legs, and recorded it as the sole inhabitants of a small northern Italian village.”

Pom Poko’s sweetly pop-punk melodies and disco-fried art-rock eruptions together with a sense of free-firing spirit, balls-out individuality is highlighted onBirthdayand mirrored no less so in an exhilarating live set. A busy summer in attendance at numerous European festivals is followed by a welcome return to these shores including their biggest UK show to date at London’s Scala. The band then return for a run of shows as guests of label-mate Ezra Furman in November. Full dates are listed below.
