jump into Pool Kids

February 5, 2020

Listen to Pool Kids for about two seconds and their relentlessly emotional and crippingly self-aware approach will hook you for life.  Vocalist/multi-instrumentalist ChristineGoodwyne, bassist Nicolette Alvarez, guitarist Andy Anaya, and drummer Caden Clinton have together combined aspects of math rock, midwest emo, post-hardcore, and pop to create a style that, in her own words, is what Hayley Williams wishes Paramore would’ve “sounded like in the early 2000s.”

Today Pool Kids share their first music video in “$5 Subtweet,” one of the more immediate moments from their breakout release, Music To Practice Safe Sex To. That whole two-second thing? Here’s where it shines. The song hits hard within the first measure, and Christine goes on to deliver biting and sharp commentary on the tempting but counter-productive choice to use social media in toxic and destructive ways, and what she has learned from her own mistakes doing so. The video, directed by Bao Ngo, does an excellent job mirroring both the sporadic nature of the track and the band’s personality that’s practically bursting from the seams.

Formed out of the ashes of hopelessness and toxic friendships, Pool Kids display an impressive technical precision, highlighted by searing guitar riffs and dynamic lyrical prowess.


On the Tallahassee, Florida quartet's debut full-length, Music to Practice Safe Sex, the band dives deep into themes of betrayal and recovery, highlighted by genre-defying elements of math-rock, art-rock, and an abundance of passion.
