shallow pools - "Golden"

After being blown away by shallow pools at this year's In Between Days, I'm thrilled to bring you a new single from the Boston based indie-pop quartet. "Golden," which was co-written by Lynn Gunn of Pvris and Cameron Walker-Wright of Twin XL and The Ready Set, is right on the border of what would normally be too pop for my personal taste, but shallow pools just make it work. It's a chilled out pop song that resides in that mid-tempo area where it's a little too calm to dance but too upbeat to just chill out to. It's going to inspire you to move at least a little, and has an impossible to resist upbeat vibe.

shallow pools says of their new single:

“Living in the moment is hard when you know that the ending is inevitable. We’ve all experienced the feeling of being stuck between happiness and existential dread, and we wanted to convey that feeling in ‘Golden’.”

You can watch the video for "Golden" below. I Think About It All the Time is due out October 13 on Equal Vision Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on shallow pools, check out the band's website.
