Smallpools is back and better than ever with their second full-length album, Life In A Simulation. This comes six years after their breakthrough debut album, Lovetap!, which we featured here back in March. Like its predecessor, the new project is Indie-dream pop at its finest. That means grooving guitar riffs, fun piano chord progressions, and plenty of sing-a-long “oh oh oooh”s and “ah ah o”s. Smallpools continues to pair their upbeat sound with more sentimental topics like the passage of time, and the complexities of relationships growing and fading. Overall, Smallpools delivers with another dreamy slate to tunes in LIFE IN A SIMULATION.
