The Barcelona-based indie label released ‘Tomorrow will come & it will be fine’ (2010), first album of Poomse and meeting point between folk, pop and slowcore with names like Come, Low, Red House Painters or Codeine -of whom Poomse covered ’ Loss leader’- in the background. A few months later, Foehn published ‘Star EP’ (2011), collecting four more experimental songs.

At this point, Rosselló decided to widen his personal project with the addition of Gaspar Reixach (bass) and Josep Verdera (drums) to present his first two recordings live in Mallorca (opening for Clem Snide or Evening Hymns), Barcelona or London (selected by the The Great Escape festival).

In 2012, Sebastià Mesquida (guitar) and Joan Llabrés (replacing Verdera) join Poomse and the band begins work on new compositions by Rosselló. These new songs will become ‘Poomse vs the Kingdom of Death’(2014). The record is mastered by John Golden (Low, Sonic Youth, The New Year) and it means a giant step forward from their previous recordings.
