The Pool boys return with Motions featuring two new tracks.
The wavy Australian duo that is Midnight Pool Party first hopped onto my radar with the first track on the Motions EP and certified Tasty! Jam “Slow Down.” Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with the pair about their music and future and get to know the two, Morilla and Oliver Dela Cruz, a little better. Now, more than a year since their last EP, it’s time to dive back in to the Pool Party.
On the record they said “We’ve been known to create disco/funk-esque music and wanted to make sure this still carried through our EP because we’ve always been inspired and influenced by different era’s, from 70’s like Chic, to the 90’s of Jamiroquai & Daft Punk. We’re also inspired by a lot of current Australian producers like Touch Sensitive, LukeMillion, Cosmos Midnight to name a few, but in saying that we are both eclectic in our individual musical tastes so you can hear some elements of rock and hip hop in some of these tracks.”
“There is big gap since our last EP as we wanted to write, produce and mix the next one ourselves. And since it was the first time showcasing ourselves as full rounded songwriters and producers, we didn’t want to rush it.Keeping with the theme of “Motion”, all tracks on the EP take you on a journey from the moment you press play.We wanted to create an experience for the listener so we experimented with different sounds so you can feel each section of every track evolve and change all the way to the end of the song.”
