Enjoy Your Pumas Celebrate the Release of Commonality at The Park Theatre January 30th

Enjoy Your Pumas will take another step toward going worldwide when they release their debut album, Commonality. To celebrate the release, they’ll be at The Park Theatre on January 30th, playing tracks off the hook-filled record and showing off their signature sound dichotomy: lilting and ethereal/aggressive and rhythmic .

Commonality is great hooks, layered guitars, a tight, poppy rhythm section and Rosie Blais’ strong diverse vocals, and is sure to remind listeners of Metric, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Bloc Party. The album was recorded primarily at Private Ear Recording Studio in Winnipeg. Death Cab for Cutie, Matt Epp, and The Waking Eyes have all recorded there. Enjoy Your Pumas appreciated the relatively lengthy time they were allowed to spend recording (six days) and put it to good use. “Working on the band for five straight days was like a vacation. A working vacation. It was a pleasant taste of what music as a career would be like,” says Janzen. Josh Benoit felt the album reflected this time well spent, “It sounds like a band that has put time and thought into the execution of their music.”
