Cold Pumas - The Hanging Valley

Cold Pumas’ return is a welcome one.

Cold Pumas’ return is a welcome one.

Label: Hardly Art
Released: August 19th 2016
Rating: ★★★★

It’s four years since Cold Pumas’ debut record, 2012’s ‘Persistent Malaise’. Now a four piece, ‘The Hanging Valley’ sees a band pushing themselves higher.

The coiled tension at the heart of ‘Fugue States’ - all six and a half minutes of it - never shows sign of faltering, while ‘A Change Of Course’ is a less intense, more freely flowing affair that’s equally as effective.

Though it may lack a couple of peaks to puncture the stratosphere, Cold Pumas’ return is a welcome one. Richard Davies
