Black Pumas announce the release of their “perfectly realized” (The Guardian) self-titled debut album on ATO Records. A collaboration between 27-year-old busker-turned-frontman Eric Burton and Grammy-winning guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada, the album marks a landmark year for the burgeoning Austin-based group, who’ve gone from local phenomenon to a tour-de-force that’s winning over fans on both sides of the Atlantic.
After making their name during a residency at C-Boys in Austin the Black Pumas have emerged not only as a live juggernaut but an incredibly capable and creative studio band. Across 10 tracks, the band brings together woozy Ghostface Killah instrumentals, Motown rhythms, and the introspective grandeur of dusty highway folk-rock to create what Uncut calls “a soul explosion.”
Quesada and Burton both return, over and over, to this almost mystical connection they felt from the beginning. It’s this sense of common purpose, of shared vision, that gives Black Pumas its focus and power - and that points to great things ahead.
