Swedish duo POOLS (comprising of the Me and My Kites multi-instrumentalist Fredrik Forell and Greenleaf’s lead vocalist Arvid Hällagård) adroitly amalgamate bold Americana, gentle folk-sound and beneficent gospel to surrender their heart-passions through rootsy & inspirational variations.
Now, they are set to release their debut album ‘You & Us’ this May via Stockholm boutique label Something Beautiful.
“It’s about how hard a relationship can be…”
Talking about the album, Arvid says, “These are some thoughts about how she and I felt during the relationship, how you have to handle yourself, and at the same time an ‘Us’ …“
“Mostly it’s about how hard a relationship can be, having a first kid. You expect it to be in a certain way, and the disappointment when those expectations turn out to be unreal.
