A duo that resides in Portland, Oregon, Ancient Pools captures the mystics of the everyday through their music. Their debut, Cosine, is a gorgeous collection of wistful otherworldly dream pop that combines the playfulness of Frankie Cosmos and the hazy compositions of Beach House.

Lush and languid leading synthesizers elevate as rhythmic counterparts undulate in the record’s opener, Forget. The slow delivering chord pulses like morning dew dropping off of foliage as Anna Jeter’s serene vocals slips in. A graceful opener, Forget is a swirling basin of calming elements and dulcet tones.
