OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Earth ain’t the best place to be right now. Let’s face it. This is probably the weirdest and most uncertain time in most people's living memories. What we need right now is music which takes us someplace else, music to escape to and with. Luckily for us, Pet Puma’s debut release has that covered.
‘Spaceship’ is a song that takes you in outer space, all the while pinned down by those funky and unrelenting basslines and keyboards. It’s the perfect song to escape the anxieties of the current climate - full of childlike wonder and fun, yet with mature influences such as Prince and the Mystery Jets made abundantly clear.
Similarly, the music video appears to be a children’s 80s TV show replicate, but upon closer looks, you will find subtle tongue-in-cheek nods to the camera for the benefit of any adults who may be watching.
‘Spaceship’ serves as the perfect cosmic introduction to a group that want to invite all life forms into their own fun-filled world. Pet Puma is an unlikely band, to say the least, consisting of a professional stuntwoman, Instagram influencer, dungeon master, entrepreneur, and songwriter. It’s unsurprisingly that this melting pot of influences and differing points of view came together to form a sound that is truly unlike anything else in the music scene right now.
But don’t just take my word for it. Alex Noble, from BBC Introducing themselves, described this band and their debut offering as “something sublime” as he introduced the first-ever radio play of the single. Praise indeed from one of the most prestigious awards for new musicians in the country.
Watch the video below to escape planet Earth for a while… And make sure you follow the band on all their socials to see them play live when they touch back down!
