Berlin Gig Forecast | Pumarosa + Hand Habits

Who | Pumarosa

When | Monday, April 24

Where | Badehaus

For fans of: Blondie, Sunflower Bean

London-based quintet Pumarosa have been combining chanting, hypnotic vocals with Nile Rogers-esque guitars and saxophone over a disco beat since 2015.

Being the cheif architecht of the band, singer Isabel Munoz-Newsome writes songs using elements of early 80’s introspective postrock (think Joy Division or Siouxsie and the Banshees) and pairs it with the ecstasy of a packed dancefloor.

So, if you’re looking for a gig where you can do some crying/some dancing—or, like with all great dance music, do both at once—look no further.

Who | Hand Habits

When | Tuesday, April 25

Where | ACUD Macht Neu

For fans of: Waxahatchee, Mazzy Star, Cigarettes After Sex

Albany psysch-folk act Hand Habits is basically just the guitarist, singer-songwriter Meg Duffy doing what she does best, performing her gentle latenight takes on heartbreak and loneliness.

While writing and recording songs for her Hand Habits project, she also played live (and contributed guitars on albums) with Kevin Morby, Mega Bog and Weyes Blood. But now she’ll come to ACUD to play her own catchy-but-still-vulnerable compositions in front of a (hopefully quiet enough) Berlin audience.
