    The night is fuelled on amazing vocals and Pumajaw prove this right at the beginning of their set. Their music is powered by the electronic sounds of John Wills and the stunning vocal talent of Pinkie Maclure. Pumajaw’s live performance effortlessly enhances the atmospheric energies that they manage to capture and create so well.
    They play tracks from their latest release, Demon Meow Meow, which seems more upbeat in comparison to their previous releases with underground bass lines under the eerie vocal notes that echo throughout the venue.

    They also have quite a stage presence. Wearing some interesting tartan trousers and a fur top, Maclure embraces all areas of the stage, bopping about and becoming tranced by the music, yet still maintaining her epic vocal ability.
    Wills’ techniques are not only interesting to hear but also to watch. The pumped up effects are dark and exciting as is his guitar playing, it contains hitting various parts of the instrument and moving it in unusual ways while Maclure plays a squeezebox.

    This performance marks the evening; it is like going into space while experiencing some kind of crazy acid trip. Fab.
