Poolside like to do things literally. The Los Angeles duo of Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise named their «daytime disco» project after their poolside home studio. (They aspire to parlay their success into DJing high-end pool parties.) And «daytime disco» happens to be a highly accurate description of their upcoming debut album, Pacific Standard Time-- over an hour of supine and serotonin-spiked grooves that are simultaneously utilitarian and engrossing. It's music for when you're too comfortably situated in a beach chair to dance, but you certainly wouldn't mind watching other people do it.

After years of toughing it out as studio rats and sidemen, the pair began Poolside as an expectation-free reaction to the MDMA-laced electro they found themselves alienated by as DJs. The Danish-born Nikolic played bass in Junior Senior and Ima Robot, started the short-lived nu-rave duo Guns N' Bombs, and co-produced the most recent Bonde Do Rolê album. Paradise DJ'd in San Francisco after a stint in the Calculators, the band that would spawn the Rapture. In Poolside, Nikolic became the singer because it was easy, and if James Murphy didn't start dropping their Balearic cover of Neil Young's «Harvest Moon» in his DJ sets earlier this year, they'd probably have called it a day. «We were slightly drunk when we were making the album-- it's very relaxed in that sense,» says Nikolic. «I think it translates.»

NEIL FRANCES began writing pop music for female vocalists in early 2016, before quickly realizing a preference for the raw, original versions of their demos.

The following months brought encouraging buzz and bootlegged radio plays from KCRW, triple j, and others. Now, armed with over an album’s worth of material, NEIL FRANCES will release new music throughout the remainder of 2018.
