NEW ARTIST OF THE DAY: POOL
Alt-indie-pop with some delicious guitars and haunting melodies...
SUBBA-CULTCHA.COM SAYS: "An astounding track from a band we hope to hear a lot more of over the coming months, and with the buzz growing around them we’re certain we’ll all be hearing a lot more from them. ‘Lipstick’ somehow distils that melancholic feeling you get as a child when Summer is ending. Chiming guitars weave in and out of contention, minimalist beats gather pace, that hushed melody riding over each progression. Their sound echoes elements favoured by Django Django, Stone Roses, Delphic or the more pop-orientated moments from Grasscut. The vocals feel vocodered, those haunting harmonies re-establishing the human element to it all whilst spiky guitar lines repeat throughout (wondrously developed in the remix from Liem). A great track and sign of things to come, can’t wait for the next track! Sample it for yourself at the bottom of this article."
Pool consists of three boys that have been making music together since they were fourteen years of age. Daniel Husten, David Stoltzenberg and Nils Hansen have been constantly evolving musically since the early days. With their basic layout of guitar, bass and drums, they manage to find a musical path between house patterns, psychedelic riff clouds and straightforward pop music. Still a major part of their sound is the get-together of the two vocalists David and Nils. Though their voices differ a lot, their coexistence creates a mellow and peerless temper accomplishing the sound of guitar, bass and drums. Pool did two releases on 2DIY4/Diynamic Music, including remixes by Solomun, Aeroplane and Stimming. Over the last year, Pool also released exclusives on Colette's"Olympics" compilation and Diynamic Music's charity compilation"5 Years". https://soundcloud.com/poolofficial/pool-lipstick?in=poolofficial/sets/lipstick-remix/s-yhxuh
