Band/Management/Booking/Press: Llorenç Rosselló [ poomseband at gmail.com ]
In 2006, when Majorcan Llorenç Rosselló decided to post his first songs as Poomse –then a lo-fi bedroom project- on Myspace, they immediately aroused the interest of Foehn Records. The Barcelona-based indie label released ‘Tomorrow will come & it will be fine’ (2010), first album of Poomse and meeting point between folk, pop and slowcore with names like Come, Low, Red House Painters or Codeine -of whom Poomse covered ’ Loss leader’- in the background. A few months later, Foehn published ‘Star EP’ (2011), collecting four more experimental songs.
At this point, Rosselló decided to widen his personal project with the addition of Gaspar Reixach (bass) and Josep Verdera (drums) to present his first two recordings live in Mallorca (opening for Clem Snide or Evening Hymns), Barcelona or London (selected by the The Great Escape festival).
In 2012, Sebastià Mesquida (guitar) and Joan Llabrés (replacing Verdera) joined Poomse and the band began work on new compositions by Rosselló. These new songs became ‘Poomse vs the Kingdom of Death’ (2014). The record was mastered by John Golden (Low, Sonic Youth, The New Year) and it meant a giant step forward from their previous recordings.z
Their third album ‘This is how we fail’ (2016) was released through Espora Records in Spain and through Custom Made Music in the US.
