Los Angeles’ quartet announce a new North American tour starting in May, covering 34 cities supporting Neon Trees. The band consist of Sean (vocals/keys), Mike (guitar), Joe (bass) and Beau (drums) and will divide their time between live shows and the studio working on the full-length debut after having released a 4-song Smallpools EP last summer via RCA Records. Earlier, Smallpools announced their upcoming March/April tour with GROUPLOVE and MS MR, which will bring them back to Austin, TX which they visited for Austin City Limits as well as visits to Washington, DC, Atlanta, Arizona and New York for instance. These dates mark their first shows of 2014 after a sold-out headlining performance at LA’s famous Troubadour back in December.

The LA band made their national TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live, performing their single “Dreaming” which you can see HERE.

The release of their self-titled debut EP gained them critical acclaim. Neon Gold calls “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.” The indie pop band shared a “Dreaming” remix by The Chainsmokers HERE. In addition NYLON Magazine premiered the Charli XCX vs Twin Idol Remix of “Dreaming”. Check out more from their Billboard interview.

Their first single “Dreaming” was produced by Captain Cuts and instantly shot to #1 of Hype Machine within the first 3 days of its revealing. You can hear “Dreaming” HERE. Smallpools explains his song by saying: “In contrast to the upbeat vibe of the music, the song talks about a moment where everything goes wrong in a situation where you thought you had it all figured out.  A moment we’ve all experienced to some degree, but most often if we’re lucky, in a dream where we get to wake up in a sweat and say, “Phewf, ok, that wasn’t real.”

 “Smallpools’ opening statement sounds like it was written to be one of alternative radio’s songs of the summer, with its exuberant, helium-voiced Passion Pit vocal riffage; sparkling, hi-fi production; and young-and-invincible ‘tude.”
– Billboard

“”Dreaming” is alt radio gold with extreme crossover potential, the kind of song that only comes along a few times a year, and rarely on a debut single.”  – Neon Gold

“Ladies and gentleman, your summer anthem has arrived.” – Pigeons & Planes
