With the release of their debut album, ‘Persistent Malaise’ today, Cold Pumas share the first visual accompaniment to their longplayer; the fruity and fanciful feast that is ‘Sherry Island’.

Shot and edited by Phil Whitby and directed by Cold Pumas’ own Patrick Fisher, the setting is one of glorious hues and faded splendour, with a table set for jelly and cocktails as band members morph, consume and dribble the spread laid out in front of them.

Cold Pumas hail from Brighton, land of windswept piers, and have been abiding by the three Rs since their inception : Repetition, Repetition, Repetition. Yet their début long-player, ‘Persistent Malaise’ is the result of an internal aeon of transient rebirths. Released today as a triumvirate split between Faux Discx, Gringo Records and Italian Beach Babes, the album is both a metronomic cathedral of married noise and a funnel of kraut-tinged catharsis. It arrives preceded by a wave of 7”s that have captured the taught and at times nascent evolution of this trio of fraternal pedants.
