Smallpools Throw An Endless Summer Bash In “Dreaming” Video: Idolator Premiere

Los Angeles-based newcomers Smallpools get wild at a backyard party in the video for their first single, “Dreaming,” and we have the exclusive premiere. The band has some fun with some ladies in the pool, plays a game of beer pong and performs for the house party, but lead singer Sean is stuck in an endless loop of partying that makes the video feel like a cross between Inception and Groundhog Day. Rather fittingly, the track’s bright, synthesized melody paired with the punchy vocals makes it a fit for any summer party playlist.

The L.A. quartet explains the story behind the song, saying it “talks about a moment where everything goes wrong in a situation where you thought you had it all figured out. A moment we’ve all experienced to some degree, but most often if we’re lucky, in a dream where we get to wake up in a sweat and say, ‘Phewf, ok, that wasn’t real.'”

In support of “Dreaming,” Smallpools will embark on their first set of live shows, on tour alongside Australia’s San Cisco, beginning this week. Watch the video up top and check out the tour dates below.
