“We challenged ourselves musically and lyrically over the last year to create our most personal songs yet. We can’t wait for everyone to hear what we’ve been working on.” – shallow pools

‘It’s a You Thing.’ contains a dreamy storyline, vibrant pop vocals, and guitar-driven instrumentation flavored with rhythmic drums.

shallow pools consists of Jess Gromada (guitar), Glynnis Brennan (vocals, bass), and Ali Ajemian (drums).

In 2012, the trio began playing acoustic covers for fun. In 2016, they started writing their own songs. Shortly afterward, they released an EP under a different name. Opportunities opened up and they played at notable Boston venues including the Middle East Downstairs and Upstairs, O’Brien’s, and the Hard Rock.

As they continued to evolve, they changed their name to shallow pools. ‘It’s a You Thing.’ is their debut single and ‘Sinking’ is their follow-up tune.

They use music as a form of therapy, and lyrically draw inspiration from their own hardships, which ranges from loss to strained relationships, to depression and anxiety. Also, they strive to promote inclusivity and to normalize seeing a band comprised of women.
