Shallow Pools
Shallow Pools
shallow pools is a three-piece alternative/pop rock band from Massachusetts consisting of Jess Gromada (guitar), Glynnis Brennan (vocals, bass), and Ali Ajemian (drums). The trio became friends in 2012, and started out playing acoustic covers for fun around their hometown. In early 2016, the group decided it was time to give songwriting a shot. They released an EP under a different name and played at notable Boston venues including the Middle East Downstairs and Upstairs, O’Brien’s, and the Hard Rock. As the group continued to evolve and grow sonically and aesthetically, a change in name was inevitable and in April of 2018 shallow pools surfaced.

With a combination of rhythmic guitar, catchy melodies, and expressive lyrics, shallow pools offers a unique sound that bridges the gap between alternative and pop rock. They use music as a form of therapy, and lyrically draw inspiration from their own hardships ranging from loss, to strained relationships, to depression and anxiety.

shallow pools strives to promote inclusivity, and to normalize seeing a band comprised of women in this genre. The group wants to establish a welcoming environment for people of all ages, sexualities, and gender identities. They understand the importance of LGBTQIA+ and female representation and hope that embracing their own identities will inspire others to do the same.

After solidifying a new name and musical direction, the trio recorded with Chris Curran at Reclaim Music Studios in Thompson, CT. shallow pools plans to release their debut single “It’s A You Thing.” in mid-July, and a five song EP in the fall. Shortly after the release of “It’s A You Thing.,” shallow pools will be opening for national touring acts such as VISTA and Walkney.
