The best kept secret in music


"False Pocket offers lush soul fusion, plays Thunder Road tonight"

Back in June, Boston's False Pocket released its neo-soul music collection titled Space. The album is a jazz euphoria that you wish would never end, each song immerses you deeper into the group's lush soul fusion. "Uh2" opens the record with a groovy beat and punchy-soulful vocals that accentuate each lyric with sass. The album's title track provides the kind of jazz atmosphere that melts the body into the nearest couch, in complete happiness; the bass is just that smooth, the sax that elegant. The snappy snare in "Touch" draws you into a slow dance groove, and deeper you go. By the end of the album, the classy electric guitar strums and Italian lyrics in "Una Prova Infinita" will have you under the band's sonic sea of harmony. The group is playing at Thunder Road in Somerville tonight, and it promises to be a good time. We are streaming "Bract" from Space below. - Rene Cobar - The Deli Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


False Pocket was born in 2015 when guitarist Alec Nelson, bassist Matt Grippo, and saxophonist Joe Newmann bonded over their love of soul, hiphop, jazz, and samba.

Nick Arcari soon found his way into the group by drumming for one of Nelson's previous projects, and by late 2016 year songs written by Nelson were beginning to form.

Daniela Fanelli met False Pocket at a local show, and after falling in love with her voice, brought her to the group in August 2017.

Unfortunately, Fanelli graduated from Emerson in 2018 and returned home overseas, leaving a vacant position in the band.

In early 2019, False Pocket connected with Sydney DellaRatta, a vocalist, and began performing shows with her in the Boston area.
