In what may have been one of Fashionably Early’s most prolific years of artist discovery, poolblood has to be one of my favorite finds of the batch in 2022. The Toronto based artist has releases dating back to 2019, but a string of four singles this year have stuck with me. Highlights from the quartet are “wfy” and “my little room”, which showcases poolblood‘s warm, charming voice paired with lush indie-folk instrumentation. There’s just such a sincerity to the writing across the songs and there’s enough of a variety sonically to really find something you love. Up next is the release of poolblood‘s debut album mole in January, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for that.
