Porches’ new album Pool is out via Domino this Friday, February 5th. Ahead of its release, listen to the album’s latest track ‘Car’ below. It follows the singles ‘Hour’ (watch the video HERE) and ‘Be Apart’ (watch the video HERE).

Says Maine on ‘Car’:

“’Car’ is about leaving a place where you're unhappy and the beauty of arriving somewhere where you feel good.  Whether you escape physically or mentally it's just about using your facilities to take control of your situation. Positive mental attitude.” 

Pool, Porches’ (aka Aaron Maine) debut full-length for Domino, and a major step forward for Maine —as an evolving singer/songwriter, and as a nascent producer. Written and recorded almost entirely in his Manhattan apartment, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles, Pool was influenced, in part, by settling in the city as an artist and a person. Says Maine, “there was something special about recording this album in my new home. To be surrounded by the city and in my own world at the same time. I quickly became obsessed with the energy around me, and my experience of New York - I was forced to see my music in an entirely different context.  This was challenging, but also exciting, when the songs started to sound like a true reflection of what I was feeling in my new surroundings."


Pool is available to pre-order now on limited pressing clear vinyl, CD, and digital download.

Pre-order: Dom Mart / Bandcamp / iTunes
