"I was embarrassed by my own body"

Pumarosa's 'Priestess' is one of the most perfect debut singles in recent memory. Subsequent singles couldn't quite match it, but the resulting LP The Witch was still very good indeed. So it was something of a mystery to me why they suddenly seemed to disappear from view. Only now have I discovered that vocalist Isabel Munoz-Newsome had been diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Thankfully, she's been successfully treated and spoke frankly about her experience in an interview with the Guardian's Nosheen Iqbal ahead of Pumarosa's Meltdown show in June.
