Stagnant Pools

Stagnant Pools is a two-piece shoegaze/post-punk band from Bloomington, Indiana. The duo consists of brothers Douglass and Brian Enas. Brian and Douglass create a wall of sound that is both grooving and aethereal. Brian's reserved vocals emanate just below the level of noise that is created by the combination of fuzzed-out guitar and on-point drum beats in such a way that they sometime register as a very in-place hum that adds to the overall sound. I highly suggest downloading their album they have made freely available through their bandcamp website. I also highly suggest coming out to one of their many shows they put on in the Bloomington, IN area. You will not regret it.
