Enjoy Your Pumas
Enjoy Your Pumas
When matched with the intricate, yet engaging melodies of guitarists Josh Benoit and Zach Allard; the impeccably pop-sensible bass grooves of Marc Gomez; and the dance-ready, beat-explosion machine that is Luke Janzen, the Pumas create a soundscape that is really beyond comparison and must be heard to be understood. Their energetic live show has received accolades from fans and music journalists alike. 2010 became a landmark year for the Pumas when it was announced that they would open for rock-legends Bon Jovi and Kid Rock at the Regina stop on their world stadium tour as winners of an Ourstage.com competition. Additionally, the year found them performing more shows with a higher profile than ever before. The band was also featured on HOT 103's Children's Hospital benefit album, performing their version of Ricky Wilde's "I Am An Astronaut”. October 2009 saw the release of Ink: The EP.
It received an “A+” review from Uptown Magazine's Jared Story, who called it "a dynamic and diverse recording." The online independent music retailer CD Baby liked it as well, naming it one of the "Top Ten Alternative Albums of 2009." The lead single, “Less Enthused” climbed to the Top 3 on Winnipeg Indie station 92.9 KICK FM’s music chart. Their debut full-length album, Commonality was recorded in the summer of 2010, and will be released on February 1st, 2011. The disc promises to be even more diverse than the EP, with an edgier pop/dance/rock sound and lyrics in both French and English. The single "Weight of the Circles" reached the Top Ten on Winnipeg indie station Kick FM and has received heavy airplay on Winnipeg stations Curve 94.3, Hot 103, as well as CBC Radio. Whether it's as a sonic delight for your headphones or as one of the most exciting live acts in Winnipeg, Enjoy Your Pumas are certainly one to watch in 2010. Read more on Last.fm.
