It’s officially summer… endless days of short shorts, sunglasses and laying by the pool… ideally the beach actually. Poolside’s “Slow Down” seems to fit summer perfectly. Smooth slooooow jam with glistening synths. Oh yaaa summer daze. This is the first single from this brand new band straight outta LA… how fitting. Their album Pacific Standard Time is out July 9th.
There is something so comforting about this somber song with its spectacular tenor voice and sweeping guitar that captures such emotion. Honestly, I had thought it was Peter Silberman of The Antlers but after taking a deeper look into this incredible song I found that Nick Principe is man behind Port St. Willow which was formed in Portland, OR 2009. “Amawalk” is powerful and haunting with its beauty.
