Biography

the band name: "pumcayó" is spanish for "thump! (it/he/she) fell".

we're 5, like the vowels, and we're all native of guadalajara, mexico -a.k.a. the pearl of the west-.

we formed october 2009 and our repertoire, which currently consists of a (constantly expanding) handful of songs, borrows compulsively from a wide spectrum of bands and genres. very little of this is intentional; it has more to do with the fact that we all just listen to different things.

we see the gear as toys lying around in a room waiting to be beat, banged, plucked, struck... we love texture, layers, we're big into musical honesty, and we say "organic" a lot.

it's still a bit difficult for us to land on sound descriptions. not to suggest that we're radical, or complex, or new even; we're just a young band and we're all over the place. inspite of the messy heterogeneity, however, we think we're simply an endemic take on the folk-rockish sound.
