Newest Release: On The Light on Kazamix Records
Pungle Lions is a duo formed early in 2013 by Damny and Rouzman, singer and drummer of La Phaze. Their music is the outcome of their experience and influences: Punk, Electro, Reggae and Soul.
Pungle Lions has a bright and fresh sound that is non-cliché yet catchy and quite memorable, their sound sticks to a positive flow and just grooves. Like most bands from overseas, they have a loyal following but have yet to reach the USA, if it were not for Bandcamp; even I might not have found this group of inspired musicians. Their music is available digitally, but I find they have taken to keeping their image “Old School” traditional, creating a series of Vinyl and offering their music on Cassette. Their production in the pure tradition of DIY gives birth to a series of singles grouped under the name “Essential 45 Box Set”. For this, they don’t hesitate to call their friends and invite them to take part in the recordings.
One of their newest releases, On The Light is offered on Clear Vinyl through their Bandcamp page, the song is offered with and without lyrics, offering the listener a way to enjoy the song any way possible. On The Light Includes immediate download of 2-track album in the high-quality format (MP3, FLAC, and more). I would advise you to move quickly, this is a limited release and there are less than a handful of copies left, Bandcamp does offer currency conversion to USD and it is still very affordable for a high quality produced single from a group with a great sound and high spirits.
