PopoBawa Short Info

PopoBawa are a band that blend tropical pop with samples and began playing live in April 2014. A few months after their formation they were featured in NME's Radar and have since had several plays on BBC 6Music and America's KEXP. They are currently writing new material with a view to recording with LA-based producer Sam Bell (Weezer, Two Door Cinema Club, Foals).

'This Gosport trio may be named after an evil Tasmanian spirit, but there's little to fear about their colourful Vampire Weekend-tinged psych. They've got a canny ear for a decent melody.' NME
