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.”
