French Synth-Pop Outfit Caspian Pool Releases Single, ‘Special Way Reloaded’

French Synth-pop outfit Caspian Pool releases their new single ‘Special Way Reloaded‘.

After an unlikely trip to Azerbaijan, Low Bird (vocals) and Jimmy Q (guitars, synthesizers, production) dive into new electro band, Caspian Pool. Strongly influenced by 90’s French touch and techno, and synth collectors, the two French characters from Annecy blast their contagious electronic cold wave.


Well regarded in the electronica scene, Caspian Pool has toured and opened for international electronic music acts such as Joe Goddard, Etienne de Crecy, and Laurent Garnier, as well as performances at festivals and venues including Canada Music Week, M for Montreal, DRO, The Old Queens Head, and Garçon Sauvage. Their video for ‘Right/Wrong’ was voted best music video of the year by Les InRocks.

In the new single, you can expect all-encompassing waves of heavy synths that perfectly spar with Low Bird’s retro pop-led vocals, as ‘Special Way Reloaded’ progresses to an epiphany of breakbeat undertones, perfectly fitting for a faraway club setting.

Written about self-transformation and the blurring of identity, Caspian Pool explores the voluntary loss, shatter and distortion of personal character. Faking, role-playing to become a special other, alternative-self. Speaking about the track, Low Bird explains,

“Special Way to me is a deep dive into our many personalities. Am I capable of reinventing myself with darker or brighter traits? How far can I change for somebody? I like the idea that versatility is not just a shallow trait, but a way to experiment my own limits, put certain characters in the light or keep them in the shadow.”

Jimmy Q goes on further to say,

“Special Way’s dark and jungle side definitely brings me back to my first love for electronic music of the early 90’s. The deep synth vibe leads to explore the internal madness of the lyrics and the waves of darker yet comfortable feelings that rise within.”

Currently recording their upcoming debut album with the help of French producer Julien Galner (Chateau Marmont, Exotica), the band is releasing remixes in collaboration with diverse and international artists such as Chris Garneau, Them There (Phoebe Killdeer & Craig Walker), Old Man Canyon, and The Pirouettes.

The duo releases their ‘Insider’ EP on October 30th, with a full LP expected in Spring 2021.
