Los Angeles band, Smallpools, has us up and dancing for the first time in 2017. They released their first single this year at the beginning of June entitled, “Million Bucks”. This single will be apart of their sophomore EP, “The Science of Letting Go”; it’s estimated to be released by RCA records on August 4th. In other words, leave room for Smallpools on your songs of summer playlist.
With this single, Smallpools is starting to lean slightly towards indie rock rather than indie pop. Their first full-length album, “Lovetap”, lacked diversity and left listeners uninterested after a couple plays. However, “Million Bucks”, sounds like it will deliver much more. The opening twenty seconds is a guitar ballad that sets up the song to sound more full and wholesome rather than an overpowering, dance synth to kick things off. Fans of CRUISR, Cold War Kids, and Bleachers are destined to have a summer worth a million bucks with Smallpools’s highly anticipated EP release.
You’re able to catch Smallpools touring with Misterwives and Vinyl Theatre at the end of this summer.
