premiere! black pumas lift you up with “colors”

April 16, 2019

Though they have only been around a short time and still months awa from dropping their debut album, the Austin duo Black Pumas have been earning a name for their dynamic live shows. Singer Eric Burton and producer Adrian Quesada’s blend of vintage soul, hip-hop, and electric energy comes through on their new single, the hook-filled “Colors.” The song has an easy charm, fitting for something he wrote “on the rooftop of an uncle’s house.” The band describes the songwriting process this way: “Eric woke up midday and started the song as the sun was going down. He was inspired by the rich multicolored hues of the sky. The song was written in the themes of mortality and togetherness.”

Check it out here, and stay tuned for their self-titled debut full length out 6/21 on ATO Records.
