Poolside announce new album; new single and video out now

Article Contributed by Big Hassle Media | Published on Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Poolside’s first new full-length LP in three years, LOW SEASON arrives Friday, February 7th. LOW SEASON marks the first Poolside album to be wholly produced by founding member and visionary Jeffrey Paradise following the departure of co-founding member Filip Nikolic in 2017. The album – which follows 2017’s breakthrough second LP, HEAT – showcases Poolside’s classic daytime disco sound with a wider array of producers, songwriters and musicians. Paradise collaborated with Panama, Ben Browning (Cut Copy), Amo Amo, Psychemagik and various others on crafting the album. He was also joined in the studio by members of the extraordinarily powerful Poolside live band, including drummer Vito Roccoforte (The Rapture), bassist/vocalist Mattie Safer (The Rapture), percussionist Brijean Murphy (Toro Y Moi, U.S. Girls) and saxophonist/keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Casey Butler (Pharaohs). 

 “LOW SEASON is an album that is sonically and lyrically akin to traveling to someplace tropical then finding the beaches empty and the weather uncertain – you venture down unexpected paths, discovering people and places on your journey that surprise you and provide you with a new perspective on life. While this might not be an experience you share on Instagram, it becomes a profound memory that inspires you for a lifetime. Sonically, while staying rooted in the electronic world, Low Season moves in an organic and human direction with guitars, pianos and hand drums weaving their way through every song. Lyrically, the songs dig deep and are personal and vulnerable. This album expresses all the ups and downs and highs and lows of life, love, loneliness, success, failure and the beauty in searching for something more.” – Jeffrey Paradise, Poolside

LOW SEASON is available for pre-order beginning today, with all pre-orders joined by an instant grat download of “Around The Sun” and previously released “Can’t Stop Your Lovin’.”

PRE-ORDER LOW SEASON

Poolside has announced today’s premiere of “Around The Sun” the latest single from their eagerly awaited new album, LOW SEASON. When writing “Around the Sun” Poolside set out to make a song that fits in the tradition of classic American songwriting from the late 60s to the 80s – the type of song that you could learn the chords to and play at a beach bonfire or sing to your significant other. The track – which features shimmering backing vocals from Los Angeles-based psych outfit Amo Amo – is available now at all DSPs; an official music video is streaming now.

“Lyrically it’s about the passage of time and the bittersweet experiences that you have over the course of the year,” says Poolside’s frontman Jeffrey Paradise. “I was personally feeling these things deeply and channeled them naturally into the lyrics. The song is not a lament but an acceptance and ultimately a celebration.”

LOW SEASON was first heralded last year with the acclaimed single, “Can’t Stop Your Lovin’,” available for streaming and download HERE. The single is accompanied by an equally irresistible companion visual that fuses the song’s message of passionate love to widespread PDA in the world’s most romantic city, Paris, France. Directed by Hala Matar (Vice, Interpol, Julian Casablancas) at locations including the Louvre, the River Seine, and the Paris Métro. “Can’t Stop Your Lovin’” has also been remixed by Neil Frances, The Undercover Dream Lovers, Katzu Oso and Sandy’s.
