NEIGHBOURHOOD HEROES

Perth’s best kept indie secret Green Pools drop video for single ‘Neighbourhood Hero’

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.

Having built up a cache of golden songs, Green Pools have now emerged from the studio with their touching new single Neighbourhood Hero – the first taste of a forthcoming EP due later in the year. Recorded and mixed by exemplary producer-songwriter CamaranoNeighbourhood Hero introduces different sides of the band’s sound while building on their stable foundation of lush vocals and soulful, guitar-driven music. Carrying a deep personal meaning for Hutchinson, Neighbourhood Hero was written as an ode to a special person she lost during childhood.

Building on the centrepiece of Hutchinson’s beautifully sweet voice, Neighbourhood Hero is a nostalgic reflection on memory and mistakes, that reveals a depth and honesty to the band’s songwriting. This personal touch is not uncommon for Green Pools. Their debut EP was a trove of emotional content, embodied in first single Forget The Boy which was written on a teary afternoon in the wake of a hard breakup. This sincerity was to become the quintessential ingredient in Green Pools’ songs – forging the backbone of the EP to come.

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. 

For fans of Gretta Ray, Maggie Rogers, The Middle East.
