It is likely that you heard “Dreaming” by the band Smallpools on your favorite alternative radio station more than once this past summer. This band is one of the newest groups to arrive at the indie-pop party, as they have been gracing this genre with their ebullient melodies since this past July.
Smallpools formed in 2013 shortly after moving to Los Angeles, where they signed with RCA Records to issue their inaugural self-titled EP. Along with “Dreaming,” the band included three other songs on the EP that are congruent with the sounds of bands like Foster the People and Walk the Moon.
They are the perfect band to bring a little spring back into your step as you walk down Comm Ave.
