Charles Waldren is a Sydney based solo artist creating indie-dance bangers & sweet-tender moments under the
moniker Poolroom. (yes the “.” is intentional.) Newest single 'Lavender' is the lead track from his forthcoming new EP
“Mood Ring” and features Sydney shoegaze singer-songwriter Moody Beach.
Growing up listening to Rat Pack records played by his parents, Waldren
deeply idolised Dean Martin’s stage presence swagger. Before long he was
introduced to the sonic aesthetic of The Gorillaz, Architecture in Helsinki, and
Little Dragon and it all started coming together for him in a blend of classic &
new. Flume’s music and had a profound impact on how he created music which
and drove him towards electronic music production. Combining a gripping
performance-art live show with forward thinking production and a live-band feel
are the core tenants of this project. Gripping live performances are rare in
electronic music space so Waldren has made that a focal point of his live show.
Poolroom.’s latest offering is a sweet indie-dance anthem called “Lavender”
and there’s a special meaning that’s culturally significant:
“The song is a message to all the women in my life - that I’ll always listen and
truly hear what they have to say that I’ll stand by them. ‘Lavender’ has a
special connection motif throughout my life: my grandma used to have a big
lavender bush in her front yard, my previous partner always has a bottle of
lavender oil on her and it’s my best friend’s favourite colour. It’s a statement of
respect & adoration to women and commitment to self-improvement.”
