Music - Smallpools


Indie-rockers Smallpools recently re-emerged out of Nashville with fresh perspective and a stirring new single, "Stumblin' Home." The lead single from the band’s “So Social” EP (via Kobalt/AWAL) charted at #48 on the Alternative Radio Charts. Fans were treated to a sneak peek of the music on the "Spring is Sprung" headlining tour, which culminated with a sold-out performance at the legendary Irving Plaza in New York City in early 2018.

Smallpools’ first hit, "Dreaming" (now RIAA Certified Gold), surged to the top of the Hype Machine chart, quickly earning the band support from alternative radio stations and late-night television programs, as well as an opening act spot for the national tours of Twenty One Pilots, Walk the Moon, Grouplove and Two Door Cinema Club. Smallpools then released their acclaimed debut album, “Lovetap!,” and sold out venues nationwide in support of its release.
