Plain and simple: this album is just fun. Smallpools has got that classic indie-pop-rock band sound and puts it on full display in Lovetap! With no shortage of poppy-synths and catchy hooks, it's basically impossible not to crack a smile while listening through. Its upbeat, bubbly, and while it approaches more solemn topics like lost love and hopelessness, it ultimately serves to inspire. Let's also take a moment to appreciate the album art here: just a "lovetap" between siblings??! As if that's even possible!
