Originally from next door in Nashville, The National Pool relocated to Baltimore due to a deep love of The Wire and the Baltimore Orioles. Actually, I can’t swear to it, but it’s likely both of those reasons are incorrect. I love The Wire and the Baltimore Orioles, but I have no clue why these dudes moved to Baltimore.
I do have a few clues as to why they contacted me. This duo is pretty good. “Better” is the track they sent over, a chilled out production with some hypnotizing vocal effects for you to fall into. While I enjoyed the track, I particularly enjoyed the final tag they placed on it in the Soundcloud upload – “seapunk”.
That’s an awesome label for this sound. I couldn’t think of anything “Better”.
