Norwegian quartet Pom Poko met while all studying at the Trondheim Music Conservatory in Norway. They begun playing and writing together and quickly began to garner interest from a wider audience. The group cite a range of influences on their unique sound, including "(West)-African music like Oumou Sangaré and Ali Farka Touré; indie bands like Vulfpeck, Palm and KNOWER; noisy high-energy bands such as Hella and Death Grips; and music with interesting lyrics such as Jenny Hval and Nick Drake. Their name is taken from one of the more vigorously outré films by Japanese animation visionaries Studio Ghibli. Between the quartet's sweet melodies, galvanic punky ructions and wild-at-art-rock eruptions, Cheater is the sound of a band celebrating the extremes that make them so uniquely qualified to thrill and fulfil any need you might have for a pick-me-up. Recorded and produced in cooperation with Marcus Forsgren (Jaga Jazzist, Broen, Arc Iris), Cheater does it's predecessor proud on every front. It bursts with color and life from it's cover art (by close collaborator Erlend Peder Kvam) outwards.
