Perhaps the thought of sunbathing while sipping a brisk, summery libation isn't a welcome one for winter starved Phoenicians this time of year. But don't let the sweltry moniker of Los Angeles-based duo Poolside dissuade you, the band is every bit as chill as the chilliest of Sonoran evenings.
DJs/producers Jeffrey Paradise and Filip Nikolic began collaborating in a California pool house turned recording studio, and their resulting breezy brand of boogie perfectly reflects its 'lax birthplace. In fact, it's impossible to spin Poolside's breakout single “Do You Believe?” without tan, coconut-oiled bodies bouncing around your mind's eye.
Coining their own genre of “daytime disco,” they strike a smooth synergy of both traditional and synthetic instrumentation, particularly favoring real-life bass and electric guitar grooves.
