Los Angeles' foursome Smallpools consists of Sean (vocals/keys), Mike (guitar), Joe (bass) and Beau (drums). Their self-titled debut EP was released this summer and gained them critical acclaim as the first single "Dreaming" shot to #1 of Hype Machine within its first 3 days and is currently climbing the alternative radio charts. To support the EP, the band went on tour with Australia's San Cisco and will head out next with Two Door Cinema Club followed by Walk The Moon in October and Twenty One Pilots in November.
The working relationship in the band is really unique. Sean and Mike, both from the East Coast, have been friends and toured in various bands for years. While Beau and Joe, of Portland, OR, came to Los Angeles to pursue music and within weeks stumbled upon Sean and Mike. The East Coasters definitely bring a different attitude and personality to the music. Compared to the laid-back “rational rhythm” team, and complement each other really well, all being a vital part to the sound and dynamic of the band - on and off stage.
