When they released their 2017 debut EP under the name Gamba, vocalist Tessa Hutchinson, guitarist Joe Simich and drummer Kim Thair laid the groundwork for what would become Green Pools.
Born of late-night songwriting sessions and sun-dappled rehearsals, Green Pools truly came into being with the addition of guitarist Harry Love and bassist Owen McGinty – evolving into a five-piece band capable of delivering detailed arrangements that balance the dark of haunting indie noir with the light of sunny uplifting folk.
It was written when I reached an age that I was fully comfortable with myself and I could articulate the feeling of being wanted by someone else.
Having built up a cache of golden songs, Green Pools have now emerged from the studio with their summery new single Mystery Charmer – a taste from a forthcoming EP due out early next year.
Recorded and mixed by studio guru Andy Lawson (Tired Lion, The Money War), Mystery Charmer introduces different sides of the band’s sound while building on their stable foundation of lush vocals and soulful, guitar-driven music.
Building on the centrepiece of Hutchinson’s beautifully sweet voice, Mystery Charmer is a coming-of-age song, that reveals a depth and honesty to the band’s songwriting.
Tessa elaborates, “Mystery Charmer reflects on maturing into womanhood and the strange fever dream you experience when first becoming attracted to someone. It was written when I reached an age that I was fully comfortable with myself and I could articulate the feeling of being wanted by someone else.”
Irresistibly catchy yet powerfully emotional, Green Pools write music that connects with the heart and soul, yet still leaves room to simply listen and enjoy as wave after wave of bittersweet melody washes over your body.
