Listen to Puka’s single ‘Train Man’

Puka Train Man

Puka Train Man

With their debut album mastered and scheduled for release before the summer is out, Cavan trio Púka have offered a first taste of the imminent record in the form of their new single ‘Train Man’.

Strong song-writing sensibilities, alongside obvious technical ability, are on display throughout the track. A psychedelically-tinged guitar hook provides the centre-point for hazy, dream-pop verses which gently, and purposefully, lead into memorable, booming choruses. The strong lead vocal is diverse and colloquial throughout, ranging from soft and subdued to powerful and unrestrained without ever losing that local flavour.

The dynamism and energy evident on ‘Train Man’ can only bode well for future live performances from Púka, as the band set their sights on a forthcoming album launch, and appearance at the Carrickmacross Arts Festival in a couple of months time.
