Poolshake started in the summer of 2013 when the vocalist/composer Riv and guitarist/lyricist Adrian decided to form a band. As soon as they started the band, they began to work on their own songs: pop songs with dreamy guitars and catchy melodies, under the influence of synth pop bands like Swim Deep and artists like Troye Sivan or Michael Jackson. On the other hand, their lyrics are characterized by exploring themes like purity, incomprehension or modernity and it’s consequences.
In 2017, their debut single, “Golden Smoothie” was released and caught the attention of festivals like Primavera Club, Low Festival or WARM UP. This single was followed by two more songs, “Seventies Sugar Dream” (2017) and “Pale Trees” (2018), and finally, in 2019, their first EP “Some Things Last Forever” came out.
The band has just released their new single Hell In My Mind, which is the A-side of the digital single Weak Heart, Hard Skin.
