Lollapalooza Spotlight: Smallpools
The song “Dreaming” put this Indie Pop Rock band on the map when it was released in May of 2013. The band, consisting of Sean (Vocals/Keys), Mike (Guitar), Joe (Bass), and Beau (Drums) originally hails from Los Angeles and was formed around a year ago. Mike Kamerman and Sean Scanlon moved from New Jersey to LA with hopes of taking their music careers to the next level and upon doing so they met Joe Intile and Beau Kuther. The unique style the band blends together, some say similar to Passion Pit, can be traced to the different backgrounds of the band members. Joe and Beau also came to LA is search of work but were making their journey from Portland, Oregon.
Their Debut self-titled EP was released last July. It featured the aforementioned, “Dreaming”. The popular single reached number 23 on the Billboard’s Alternative Songs list and gamers will also recognize this hit as it appears on the soundtrack of the popular video game FIFA 14. Also included on their initial album were singles “Mason Jar” and Over & Over” . Signed to RCA Records, Smallpools has recently toured with Two Door Cinema Club, Walk the Moon, and Neon Trees.
