Smallpools Play First Ever Live Show in New York on July 13 at Brooklyn Bowl + July Tour with San Cisco (tour dates below)
Today, Smallpools is revealing a brand new EP track, “Mason Jar”, to kick start their first ever tour with Australia’s San Cisco and their first ever live show on July 13 at Brooklyn Bowl. The foursome consists of Sean (vocals/keys), Mike (guitar), Joe (bass) and Beau (drums).
Listen to “Mason Jar” –
“Mason Jar” shows the band’s signature sound, which Scanlon talked about with Billboard as trying to make “the most interesting melody over the most feel-good chord progression possible,” while also serving up something new and refreshing. Check out more from their Billboard interview.
Neon Gold premiered “Mason Jar” today and says “They’re basically your new kings of summer, and today they’re back to further entrench themselves on the throne with their latest offering, “Mason Jar”.
Recently Los Angeles’ Smallpools announced their 4-song self-titled debut EP, which will be released on July 16th via RCA Records. The indie pop band shared a “Dreaming” remix by The Chainsmokers HERE. In addition NYLON Magazine premiered the Charli XCX vs Twin Idol Remix of “Dreaming”.
Their first single “Dreaming” was produced by Captain Cuts and instantly shot to #1 of Hype Machine within the first 3 days of its revealing. You can hear “Dreaming” below. Smallpools explains his song by saying: “In contrast to the upbeat vibe of the music, the song talks about a moment where everything goes wrong in a situation where you thought you had it all figured out. A moment we’ve all experienced to some degree, but most often if we’re lucky, in a dream where we get to wake up in a sweat and say, “Phewf, ok, that wasn’t real.”
One thing is certain though, Smallpools love to dream and they are just getting started.

“Smallpools’ opening statement sounds like it was written to be one of alternative radio’s songs of the summer, with its exuberant, helium-voiced Passion Pit vocal riffage; sparkling, hi-fi production; and young-and-invincible ‘tude.”
“”Dreaming” is alt radio gold with extreme crossover potential, the kind of song that only comes along a few times a year, and rarely on a debut single.” – Neon Gold
“Ladies and gentleman, your summer anthem has arrived.” – Pigeons & Planes
