Transcending beyond the singer-songwriter genre into the avant garde, Virgin Pool is the solo project of Los Angeles based songwriter and producer Christine Aprile. Using an unlikely pairing of classical guitar, winsome vocals, and electronic music tropes, Virgin Pool creates evocative soundscapes that fuse folk pop sensibilities with orchestral strangeness. It's a bit like Leonard Cohen, Linda Perhacs, and Suicide all rolled into a single psychedelic drive through the desert after a bad break up.
As a classically trained guitarist and creator of electronic pop music, each aspect of Virgin Pool is indelibly stamped with Aprile’s artistic flair. Virgin Pool’s self produced solo EP will debut on Holodeck Records in the spring of 2019.
