Interview with . . . shallow pools

 

pink1 (1)

This interview with shallow pools went swimmingly. We talked about taking risks and sharks. The ladies of shallow pools -Glynnis Brennan (Vocals/Bass), Jess Gromada (Guitar), Ali Ajemian (Drums) – have become immersed in the Boston music scene since 2016. They will be making waves on a national level with the release of an EP this fall.

Ok, let’s get to the interview before I get carried away and jump the shark.

 

 

 

How did you become supporters of the LGBTQIA community?

We’re all part of the community so it came naturally for us to be big supporters!

If someone wanted to be more involved in LGBTQIA community activities, where should they start?

Most of the activities we enjoy doing lead us to other people in the LGBTQIA community that enjoy the same things. There are a lot of facebook groups for fun events, there are housing groups for finding LGBTQIA friendly apartments, and so much more! If you’re in Boston, a good place to go is the monthly “Break the Chains” queer dance party which is all ages.

Does everyone in the band identify as a specific pronoun?

We all use she/her pronouns!

Do you prefer the shallow end of the pool or the deep end?

A unanimous “deep end”, ironically.

How long do you have to wait to go swimming after watching “Jaws” or “Sharknado”?

Approximately zero minutes. Both movies are iconic– none of us are afraid of sharks!

What is the riskiest thing that any of you have ever done?

One time Glynnis tried to open a can of soup with a knife (clearly we’re not big risk takers).

What do you want people to know about Shallow Pools?

We want people to know that we understand the importance of representation and hope that by embracing our own identities, we’ll inspire others to do the same!

Where was your first show?

The first show that we played for real as a group was at a venue called Club Bohemia at the Cantab Lounge in Cambridge, MA. The first show we played as shallow pools was at O’Brien’s in Allston, MA!

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
