Smallpools latest tour, The American Love Tour featuring special guests Phoebe Ryan and Machine Heart, is sadly coming to an end. On Nov. 5th, the band played their second-to-last show at The Constellation Room in Santa Ana, Ca.
The bright green hair is the first thing you notice about Phoebe Ryan. Once she opens her mouth, a breathy sweet vocal similar to those of Tove Lo can be heard. You can’t help but fall in love with her voice. Its incredible how small petite girl can have such a beautiful strong voice. Her indie pop music layered with synths was the perfect opener for The American Love tour.
After Ryan’s performance, indie pop band, Machineheart played a very short 30 min set. Lead singer Stevie Scott’s voice reminds me of a mix of Carly Rae Jepsen and Florence Welch . She has a sweet feminine voice like Jepsen yet at the same time a raspy soft voice like Welch. The group was fun to hear, they even played a verse from a Britney Spears song making the whole crowd go wild. Machineheart’s music is very fun and upbeat, filled with catchy drum beats.
Rocking a bright red jacket, frontman Sean Scanlon and the rest of the members of Smallpools, gave a spectacular performance. The band opened with the song ‘Over & Over,’ and had the crowd going crazy, jumping around and signing-along. The band’s catchy repetitive pop tunes, are easy to remember and fun to hear.
