Shallow Pools have become a scene favorite in the last year. From their recent signing with Equal Vision Records to their appearance on our very own Tate Logan’s Punk Goes Pride, the band is showing no signs of slowing down. Today, they announced their debut full-length, I Think About It All The Time, which drops October 13. To celebrate the news, Shallow Pools released their new single “Nightmare,” giving listeners a sneak peek into the record’s mature sound. 

Combining distorted guitar riffs with pulsing synthesizers, “Nightmare” is reminiscent of Maroon 5’s Songs About Jane both sonically and in its attitude. Yet, there is a fresh pop-rock element that highlights Shallow Pool’s commitment to writing songs that empower their fans to speak out against misogyny. The song’s lyrics tell the story of a one-sided relationship that is going nowhere. Rather than falling into the narcissist’s trap again, vocalist Glynnis steps out of the unhealthy pattern and asserts herself as their new nightmare.

The music video depicts the band in a room full of pink light. Simply singing the words straight into the camera, Glynnis and the rest of the band flip the script and reclaim their power through their performance. 

In addition to the new single, Shallow Pools is giving fans the chance to preorder new merch for their debut record, I Think About It All The Time. The new merch drop includes a hoodie, t-shirt, and sling bags, along with an orange marble variant vinyl LP. This is a limited drop, which you can find on the band’s merch store

Until the record drops, stay tuned for more news on the band’s socials and stream “Nightmare” here. And if you’re in the Massachusetts area, stop by their set at In Between Days Festival on Saturday, August 19!
