2022 marks the ten-year anniversary of Poolside's iconic debut album Pacific Standard Time. To celebrate, Poolside will be commemorating the album by releasing 'Rainy Daze', a lost b-side from the album. The track features all of the sonic hallmarks of Poolside: a Poolside mid-tempo groove beneath hand claps, floating synths, and laid back guitar and piano.
Pacific Standard Time – released (10) years ago this July and coming back in print for the first time in (5) years – is an essential record of the 2010s. One of the first albums to bridge the gap between indie and electronic music, PST is the progenitor of "nu-disco", and more specifically the first document of Poolside's "Daytime Disco" sound. PST includes Poolside's signature tracks "Harvest Moon" and "Do You Believe", and since its release the record has amassed upwards of 300mm streams across all platforms. In 2012 Pitchfork called PST "dance music for the chillout tent", perfectly predicting the trends that would follow in PST's wake as dance music became more accessible in the streaming era.
Poolside is the recording project of producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Paradise. Poolside has released four acclaimed albums – Pacific Standard Time (2012), Heat (2017), Low Season (2020) and High Season (2021) – remixed countless high-profile acts such as Billy Idol, Jack Johnson & Milky Chance, Purple Disco Machine, Rhye, L'Impératrice, DRAMA, Miami Horror and more, and toured the world over performing at major festivals across the globe including Coachella, Outside Lands, Primavera and Corona Capital as well as supporting marquee artists like LCD Soundsystem, Kacey Musgraves and Tycho.
