Poolroom. continues winning streak with killer new single, ‘Tangerine’

It’s going straight to the poolroom! Yep, Sydney’s Charlie Waldren, aka Poolroom., has served up a delicious dose of dancefloor goodness to see us through the end of Summer.

The solo beatmaker has a knack for crafting irresistible indie-bangers and Tangerine is no exception. Poolroom. has got us licking our lips after this fresh taste from his forthcoming EP, mood-ring.

PoolroomSydney artist, Poolroom., has dropped a lush, Summer drenched groove hit designed for dancefloors and straight-up happiness.

Launching off the back of his debut 2019 EP Precious Boi, Poolroom. has shown no signs of slowing down and we couldn’t be more about it. With a wink and a nod to Prince and Cosmo’s Midnight, there is a melting pot of silken synths, ’80s groove, and modern flavours in the mix, and it comes tasing very good.

With a chorus equally as transcendent as it is catchy, Poolroom. has mastered the art of capturing joy in a song. The same can be said of Waldren’s sister project Pyjama Sundayz, who capture lightning in a bottle every show. If you want to dance and smile, this is the perfect drug. The six-minute groove will have you shaking from start to finish and is a true testament to the smile-inducing skills of Poolroom.

Tangerine is the second taste from Poolroom.’s forthcoming 5-track EP mood-ring, conceptualised around the theme of colours. Coming off the back of his latest single, Lavender, a collab with fellow Sydney dream-pop act Moody Beach, the vibes remain at an all-time high.

“For me, Tangerine is the colour I associate with immense gratitude for my friends,” says Charlie Waldren. “I made this just after getting a coffee with one of my closest. I was going through a pretty tough time & they cheered me up so much that I ran home afterwards & wrote the song. It’s a huge ‘thank you’. My friends make me boogie and smile so it made sense to capture that.”

Poolroom. combines a gripping performance-art live show with forward-thinking production and a live-band to compose the core tenants of his project. Gripping live performances are rare in electronic music space so Waldren has made that a focal point of his live show, and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
