Smallpools‘ debut single came at just the right time: with the crossover appeal of fun. and the summery feel of The Naked & Famous, the L.A. four-piece’s debut single is guaranteed to be the soundtrack of the summer.
Premiered by the taste-makers of Neon Gold, “Dreaming” is a shimmery, soaring, synth-driven number whose catchiness and glossy vocals rival those of Passion Pit, which is why the song has been #1 on Hype Machine these past few days.
