Smallpools released  their debut album LOVETAP! on March 23rd through RCA Records and capped on their release week with a slew of performances at SXSW and a stellar performance of  “Karaoke” on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. Smallpools also supported the album release with a 32-date USA headlining tour which had the band playing to sold out rooms nationwide.

Supporters like VogueInterview MagazineIdolatorBuzzFeed etc all praised the band’s catchy songs and invigoration live shows. Neon Gold called “Mason Jar” “a 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.” In addition, NYLON Magazine premiered the Charli XCX vs Twin Idol Remix of “Dreaming”. Check out more from their Billboard interview.


Smallpools consists of Sean (vocals/keys), Mike (guitar), Joe (bass) and Beau (drums).
