Adrian Quesada has received a Best Rock Performance nomination for Black Pumas’ “More Than a Love Song”. This track is the lead single off the psych rock duo’s latest album, Chronicles of a Diamond, which dropped October 27th via ATO Records.
“What Black Pumas do better than most is give their true, honest selves to each composition. ‘More Than A Love Song’ is an earth-shaking anthem, as catchy as their first album but with added grit to their glossy production” – NME
