Baltimore 2-piece The National Pool have been bringing us electronica-rock since 2006. With an album, EP and 2 singles (soon to be a third) already under their belts, these guys certainly know what they’re doing and doing it right. 

New single ‘Better’ shows a new direction for White and Cornett as the duo have explored a more meditative genre though the heavy use of synths and a vecoder. The verse-verse structure and repetitive, minimalistic lyrics counteract the synths to create this chilled out sound that makes pressing repeat unavoidable.

The video for ‘Better’ mirrors The National Pool’s new meditative style so check it out below!
