Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.
Massachusetts trio shallow pools have today shared their sophomore single, “Sinking” — and it’s yet another promising alt- and pop-rock gem. Following their July debut “It’s A You Thing.”, the band are beginning to prove themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the Boston music scene. Comprised of Jess Gromada (guitar), Glynnis Brennan (vocals, bass), and Ali Ajemian (drums), the trio started playing music together in 2012, began writing in 2016, and finally emerged as shallow pools earlier this year. Drawing inspiration from their own personal battles, shallow pools’ lyrics and colorful sound and aesthetic aren’t unlike Paramore’s “Decode” era. “You dictate all my fears/I try to push you away/I wish you’d disappear,” Brennan sings in the new single, offering up lines like “But you keep weighing me down/Feels like I’m sinking.” shallow pools shine light on issues such as depression and anxiety in their music, and they also strive to promote inclusivity and the normalization of female musicians in their genre. shallow pools’ debut EP is due this fall, and they’ll be at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston on September 16 with JOATA, Klokwize, and Corner Soul.
