Poolside

Poolside began as a recording project in a backyard pool house in Los Angeles, and now features members of The Rapture and Toro Y Moi. With a sound that evokes Balearic sunsets and pinches liberally from the 80s Italo-disco tracks which are just so in right now, they might not likely win any awards for originality, but what they can do is transport you to a place where the sun is hot, the drinks are cold and it’s impossible to resist the urge to move your body in time to the lush waves of dizzying disco which pulse out from the stage in front. See them at Amsterdam's Melkweg on 30 January.
