Pours Premiere New Song "Boomcan" @ Wondering Sound * Debut Self-Titled Album Out May 2014 on Section Sign Records

Stream "Boomcan" from Pours exclusively @!

"Vermont duo Pours - Bryan Parmelee and ex-Man Man bassist Christopher Shar - practice electronic music as atmosphere, crafting billowy, beautiful songs that glide and hover. Case in point, “Boomcan,” from their forthcoming debut album. Synths rustle like lace curtains in a cool breeze, and Parmalee’s voice is distant and whispery, a shadow passing over a snowbank in the early morning. The combined effect is lovely - part elegy, part lullaby." - Wondering Sound

In support of their upcoming, debut self-titled album out May 2014 on local label Section Sign Records, Burlington, VT-based psychedelic pop duo POURS have premiered their new song "Boomcan" streaming exclusively at

In addition, the band is announcing a series of upcoming shows taking place April 12th in Burlington with Small Black, and April 28th at New York's The Studio at Webster Hall with Alden Penner of The Unicorns, Cloud Becomes Your Hand and more (full itinerary below).

Pours is a Burlington, VT-based moody psychedelic duo comprised of Bryan Parmelee and Christopher Shar. By combining abstract electronic textures with heavy rhythms and hypnotic melodies they create music that is as sonically diverse as it is accessible, and large enough sounding to be mistaken for more than just a duo.

After years of extensive touring playing bass with Philadelphia art-rockers Man Man and later Santigold, Shar relocated to Burlington and began focusing on drums, where he would eventually meet and join forces with fellow VT transplant, Parmelee. After a few years of playing shows, recording demos, and refining their sound, Pours is preparing to release their self-titled debut LP, an ambitious and sprawling collection of tones and moods brilliantly blended into dense psychedelic tunes anchored with strong pop sensibilities.

The debut Pours release will be available this Spring on Section Sign Records, the new Burlington-based record label pressing an initial run of 500 copies.
