Out Now: Smallpools EP on RCA Records

Tour with San Cisco Started: in NYC on 7/22 and wraps in LA on 8/13 (full list of tour dates below)

Smallpools’ debut 4-track EP is out now via RCA Records, which can be streamed via Pigeons & Planes HERE and below. Idolator exclusively revealed the first official music video for the single “Dreaming” HERE and again, below. The Los Angeles 4-piece started their first ever tour with Australia’s San Cisco. The foursome consists of Sean (vocals/keys), Mike (guitar), Joe (bass) and Beau (drums).

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 calls “Mason Jara sepia splash of power-pop that crystallizes into a starscraping smash before the verse even kicks in, as stadium-sized Of Monsters And Men gang vocals ride high on the buoyant flair of Smallpools’ youthful, Two Door-esque ebullience.” 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” HERE. 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.”
– Billboard
“”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
