Sounds | Pools, Looking For Trouble

Beste Arvid Hällagård, als het je een beetje meezit, dan valt die 'trouble' al bij al goed mee en kan je nadien samen met je dochter lachen om het afgelegde traject. De zorgen die je had zijn dan snel vergeten. Luister dan nog eens terug naar deze zachte ballad die je hier zo mooi vertolkt, naar die tedere pianoklanken en je toch wel aparte stem. "The track is about how when my daughter gets older, she will go out to some bar and dance her way through the night, looking for trouble, which is actually the love that we all need and crave.”

ter info

The latest addition to the Swedish musical pipeline is the charming americana duo, POOLS. The two-piece outfit is the collective vision of multi-instrumentalist Fredrik Forell and lead vocalist Arvid Hällagård. Reminiscent of bands such as The National and The Tallest Man On Earth, POOLS combine americana, folk and gospel to create something quite remarkable. POOLS marks the end of a journey for the pair, who used to function as the electro-pop group WYRES in addition to Arvid’s place within stoner rock band Greenleaf. However, it is also symbolic of their new beginning; the arrangements might be delicate, but their artistic intensity remains the same.
