Poolside – If We Make It – Poolside are Los Angeles based duo Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise—their sound is described as “Daytime Disco.” Poolside’s debut single “Do You Believe” was positively received by peers, Todd Terje, Dimitri From Paris, and The Magician, and Dazed & Confused praised the song for its “pop-tinged disco, brimming with optimistic vocals and retro acid synths,” while NME lauded its “supremely casual decadence.” “Take Me Home,” Poolside’s second single was released in November 2011 and was used as the first song on Aeroplane’s In Flight Entertainment compilation. Their debut album, Pacific Standard Time, was released on July 9, 2012 on Day & Night Records. In 2004, Filip Nikolic (at the time bassist for Junior Senior) and Jeffrey Paradise met at Frisco Disco, another one of Paradise’s earlier parties in San Francisco. A year later Nikolic came out to Los Angeles for a few months and the two gathered together in the studio to have fun and make a few songs. In 2006, the duo decided to make a disco influenced project; however, both were busy with other projects and their work “never got too serious.” Later, in 2010 Poolside debuted their first EP/single “Do You Believe.” The duo released their track “Take Me Home” in October 2011 followed by a video released on Scion Audio Visual on November 2011. On July 9, 2012, Poolside released Pacific Standard Time. The album was put together with no serious goal in mind, only to make groovy, daytime disco sounds as a result. The LP takes you to a sunny California paradise, and as Pitchfork music blog says, “It’s a disco album that slinks along with the urgency of a teenager on the first day of summer vacation.” Wikipedia®.
