STILL WOOZY & REMI WOLF SHARE NEW SINGLE & VIDEO “POOL”
17 MARCH 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Still Woozy and Remi Wolf have joined forces for a beautifully surreal new single and video called “Pool.” Out today via Still Woozy Productions/Interscope Records, “Pool” marks the first-ever one-on-one collaboration between close friends and former tourmates Still Woozy (a Portland, Oregon-based singer/songwriter/producer otherwise known as Sven Gamsky) and Remi Wolf (a Bay Area-bred singer/songwriter/producer). “Pool” is available now at all digital retailers.
Co-written and produced by Sven and Remi with additional contributions from Jared Solomon (aka Solomonophonic), “Pool” is Still Woozy’s first new music since his 2021 debut album If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is. With its gorgeously detailed collage of sounds — hazy guitar tones, swooning harmonies, spacey beats, sudden squalls of feedback — “Pool” opens on a verse from Remi, whose voice captures every moment of longing and confusion with breathtaking intimacy. Halfway through the track, Sven continues the song’s ultra-vivid storytelling, once again revealing his ability to transform melancholy into beauty. And in the final seconds of “Pool,” their voices converge and add new power to the track’s confessional chorus: “I don't really know where my head's at/I just know my heart's not there yet.”
Directed by Haley Appell, the video for “Pool” drifts between home-movie-like intimacy and a breathtakingly colorful sequence of shots that follow Sven and Remi through a series of settings: a backyard pool, a windswept mountainside field, a carnival ride at dusk. In a perfect visual counterpart to the song’s dreamlike atmosphere, the video offers up many moments of strange magic, including some mid-air acrobatics from the duo as well as Remi’s mythically long pigtails.

SAYS STILL WOOZY
“Pool was such a beautifully natural collaboration - and is a great reflection of how life can just so seamlessly turn into art,” says Remi Wolf. “It perfectly showcases mine and Sven’s comfortability with each other and how both of our wildly different skill sets can create something that feels so true to both of us. We went into the writing process with the intention of being 100% honest and specific with where we were both at that day and I love how when I listen to the song it feels like a true time capsule to both of our life situations at the time”
Sven and Remi first connected back in 2018, when mutual friends introduced them at one of Sven’s shows at The Roxy in Los Angeles. After checking out Remi’s music and immediately loving her wildly imaginative form of indie-pop, Sven asked Remi to join him on a 2019 tour, during which they became great friends. While hanging out by a pool in L.A. in October 2021 and catching up on life, they decided to create a song together. The next day, the two collaborators teamed up with Solomonophonic, and wrote all of “Pool” in a single afternoon.
“Pool” arrives as Still Woozy continues his sold-out North American tour in support of If This Isn’t Nice, I Don’t Know What Is, a massively successful run that included three nights at Brooklyn Steel last month and two nights at The Novo in Los Angeles this week. Still Woozy recently announced a second leg of the tour kicking off in May and is gearing up to play major festivals like Coachella, Hangout Fest, Forecastle Fest, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and Splendour In The Grass.
