KIDS WITH THE VICIOUS SMILES.

Less than two months ago, Smallpools weren't even a thing - there was no music available, no live show to see, even Google couldn't find them. But now, on the back of an instant summer classic called "Dreaming" (premiered on these very pages), they've gone from complete obscurity to scaling the alternative charts seemingly overnight. They're basically your new kings of summer, and today they're back to further entrench themselves on the throne with their latest offering, "Mason Jar."

It's a sepia splash of power-pop that crystallizes into a starscraping smash before the verse even kicks in, as stadium-sized Of Monsters And Men gang vocals ride high on the buoyant flair of Smallpools' youthful, Two Door-esque ebullience. Smallpools make their worldwide live debut this Saturday at Popshop Brooklyn (tickets still avail HERE), and you better believe it's going to be a night to remember. Don't take our word for it though, pop the top off "Mason Jar" below and see for yourself.

They played at the Echoplex this past Monday so I wouldn't call it their debut....

One hit wonder. This song is just a mashup of everything else out there. And not a very good one. Shame, because I LOVE Dreaming.

well gosh i dont know what its like to know everything about music like the fellows above... but i love the song, and think Neon Gold is a breath of fresh air in the music community. So thank you Smallpools, and NG:)

Haters gonna hate, trollers gonna troll. This is good, catchy music. Calling a group a "one hit wonder" after their second song release is a significant sign of musical idiocy.

They played at the Echoplex? Are you sure about that? I can't find any information about it and their twitter never mentioned it.
