Listen :: Manchester's Pool Art share epic new single 'Gender Balance'
Words: Ellie Ward
After 'Don't Feed Them To Me', a Little Indie Track Of The Day in October, Manchester duo Pool Art come back with 'Gender Balance'.
Scott Fair (vocals, guitar) and Lee Corfield's (drums), self-produced, part alt-rock, part shoegaze follow-up is "a song about loneliness. It's semi-autobiographical, but the initial inspiration for the song came from an article about the gender imbalance in China. The men far outweigh the women, meaning many men don't find partners. It also reflects on inequality for women."
The cover art for the close to six-minutes track is the tail fin of a whale, inspired by the 52Hz whale that is thought to be one of the loneliest animals on the planet due to the unusual frequency of its call. It's something that the duo have cleverly managed to reinterpret on 'Gender Balance', and it is easy to feel the majesty of the giant sea creature.
'Gender Balance' is available now to stream and buy via Bandcamp.
Pool Art play Jingle Fuzz at Aatma in Manchester this Saturday (December 17) with others. Details, click here.
