Based out of the rugged Sonoran desert of Tucson, AZ, Nic Pool creates an ambient mix of emotional balladry and more gritty production à la early Bjork and Portishead. His debut single “The Falls” was met with critical acclaim, making it one of 2018’s best breakthrough hits. With the appeal of indie pop backed by more intriguing and darker undertones, “The Falls” made it to the top of a number of lists as well as earned remixes from DJs JD Samson and Daniel D’artiste.
Hi most recent release, “Rockets” is a heartfelt sonic plea, that contains not only an immediate emotional pull but also an incredibly dynamic arc. From its lingering beginnings to its reflective end and the wild groove in between, the track feels perfectly suited for fall’s cooling temps, even in Arizona.
