Pool: Don't Call My Name
Hamburg honeys, Pool are a German outfit with music undertones ranging from "Motown to house music. " They earned a reputable name among bloggers as newcomers to their year's SXSW.
When asked about the German music scene, the band spoke about the difficulties of being an indie band within a techo-saturated society. “The international focus on the German music scene is basically directed to dance and house music. In Germany there is so much more techno and electronic music than interesting indie or pop music in general. But whenever there is something really good - it finds its way.”
Pool are an exciting band who offer a new take on the indie genre. They are determined to break out of the mold of their German predecessors; and they seem to be succeeding.
I'm excited to see where their drive and passion takes them. I see big things.
