Formed out of the ashes of hopelessness and toxic friendships, Pool Kids, led by multi-instrumentalist Christine Goodwyne, displays an impressive technical precision, highlighted by searing guitar riffs and a dynamic lyrical prowess. 

On the Tallahassee, Florida quartet's debut full-length, Music to Practice Safe Sex, the record to dives into themes of betrayal and recovery, highlighted by genre-defying elements of math-rock, art-rock, and an abundance of passion. 

"...frank and unapologetic lyricism is paired with a distinctly impassioned vocal delivery, speaking to an emotional experience of frustration and exhaustion many can relate to. Such lyricism and delivery can of course only be met with equally as intense and emotional of music." - Delaney Motter/Phluff

"Top 50 Math Rock albums of 2018" - Fecking Bahamas

"Christine Goodwyne uses her femininity as fuel to the world that tosses women around and keeps them rightfully angry and vocal." - Lvl to the Room
