December 29, 2023 BY Emma Orland
Indie-rock trio Smallpools are back with “Night Shift,” offering a visceral journey through the highs and lows of chasing a dream, while encapsulating the struggle of being trapped in a routine, yearning for something greater. Listen to the band’s energetic first taste of new music from their forthcoming album HERE.
“Sometimes we get stuck in a routine that we can’t break out of. The nightshift provides a comfortable anonymity, but we wanna find more. Will we bring to life a dream that still lingers within or remain in this loop that is the nightshift,” elaborates Smallpools.
Smallpools erupted onto the scene with their head turning opening statement, “Dreaming” (now RIAA Certified Gold). The song surged to the top of the Hype Machine chart, quickly earning the band support from alternative radio stations across the country, multiple late night television including appearances on Late Night with Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The band then released their acclaimed debut album LOVETAP! in 2015 followed by two highly successful EP’s The Science of Letting Go (2017) and So Social (2019) and their second full length album Life in a Simulation (2021). With just two EPs and two LPs under their belt, Smallpools have racked up over 400 million streams and counting. The band has spent a majority of the past 7 years on the road for sold out headline tours and opening for bands like Twenty One Pilots, Walk the Moon, Neon Trees, Grouplove and Two Door Cinema Club. They’ve gone on to entertain crowds at major festivals like Lollapalooza, Firefly and Summerfest.
The band – Sean Scanlon (Lead Vocal/ Keys), Michael Kamerman (Guitar), & Beau Kuther (Drums) – have carved an indelible mark on the indie rock scene with their infectious melodies, anthemic hooks, and magnetic stage presence. As they embark on this exciting new chapter with Nettwerk, fans can expect a series of electrifying singles honoring previous work while enthusiastically embracing the new, all leading up to their highly anticipated third album.
