Puma Blue Releases New Single “Falling Down”
Puma Blue AKA: Jacob Allen, release his new album, Holy Waters on September 1st via Blue Flowers. Today, the Atlanta based artist has shared the LP’s final single “Falling Down,” The track follows “Hounds”, “Pretty”, “O, The Blood” and “Dream Of You”.
– Jacob explains, “We were watching [90’s Japanese anime series] Cowboy Bebop in the studio and this dusty sound we made really came from those visuals. I wrote the lyrics during a challenging moment, feeling like my stomach was plummeting and struggling to get myself out of the depressing hole I’d fallen into. The song isn’t so much about picking yourself back up as it is about how it feels to fall in the first place.”
Holy Waters was recorded with Puma Blue’s live band over the course of two visits to Eastbourne’s Echo Zoo Studios, Inspired still by luminaries from Jeff Buckley to Björk, more important to Holy Waters was Portishead’s inexplicable marriage of a live band and production, and the improvisational work of Can and Hendrix. This is an album that can be devoured late at night with headphones as much as it can be blasted on the open road.
