ELEANOR FRIEDBERGER of Fiery Furnaces fame is back to infatuate us all with songs of love and loss, written with her inimitable flourish.
Eleanor Friedberger creates love songs. Hellos and goodbyes, infatuation, pre-occupation, loss – but not simply about romantic love.
“They’re also love songs to music: how you feel on stage when you do something spontaneous and it works, how you feel when you hear someone sing a song for the first time, what it’s like to watch a friend perform, how you can feel close to someone you barely know because you both happen to love the same record, or playing the same song forty times in a row, not being able to rest until you own every song recorded by your favorite singer, or every version of your favorite song. “

Empty Pools formed in the halcyon days of fading summer 2011. They artfully combine elements of noise rock with teen dream melodies, late ’70s CBGBs angularity and the jazzy, world pop sophistication of the Thrill Jockey set. Following a handful of DIY releases, their first single for BATTLE (Frenchkiss Label Group) made it into Pitchfork’s top tracks of 2012, alongside coverage in the NME, Drowned in Sound, The Line of Best Fit, and on BBC 6Music and Radio 1. The band have since shared stages with Sharon Van Etten, Destroyer, Menomena, White Denim and Tom Tom Club.
Empty Pools have just wrapped up recording on their debut album, ‘Saturn Reruns,’ which is released on November 4th on BATTLE, preceded by single ‘Exploded View’ on August 26th.
