Album Review: Smallpools - Lovetap! (9/10)

SmallpoolsLovetapSMALL2Indie pop band Smallpools debut with flying
 colors, delivering infectious, upbeat tunes
 that instill the desire to dance—perhaps
 with a bonfire on the beach or cruising the 
highway with windows down. Nearly every
 song is a catchy pop gem that paints a
 vibrant mural of jubilation. The only down-
side is that the songs start blending together midway through the album, sounding similar to one another. The band has nevertheless found a sound where they can shine. Standout tracks include hit single “Dreaming” and “Street Fight” with its cheesy yet endearing lyrics. – Siri Svay
