Black Pumas – Oct 33
Black Pumas, is the creative partnership between Grammy Award-winning guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada and singer/songwriter Eric Burton who create soulful cuts that are sprinkled with a dose of funk. Since introducing themselves with double A-side singles ‘Fire / Black Moon Rising’, the pair have since gone onto release their incredible self-titled debut album last year. The record, which features stand out singles like ‘Colors’ and ‘Know You Better’, wonderfully captures the essence of Black Pumas musicianship and artistry – each song is rich with poetic storytelling, heartwarming vocals and sublime instrumentation.
For COLORS, the Texan duo drop an ever so soulful performance of ‘Oct 33’, a highlight from ‘Black Pumas’. Opening with gentle acoustic guitars and the serene vocals of Burton, the slow-burning number eases into its rhythm as more layers of instrumentation are added into the mix. Check out the magnificent performance of ‘Oct 33’ above, and be sure to give the duo’s stunning record a spin too!
