flumpool (フランプール) is a four member band from Osaka, Japan.
They formed the band ‘CUBE’ in 2002. In 2007 they gained a drummer and changed their name to ‘flumpool’. This year they released two indies singles; ‘Mirai Kanai’ (ミライカナイ) and ‘LABO’ which are sold in a cd rental chain store in Japan. On September 1st they became the Campaign Song Artist for the Japanese cell-phone company: au KDDI ‘LISMO’. Later that month thier song ‘Hana ni nare’ became the music for ‘LISMO’’s TV commercial. Their most recent song “Over the rain ~Hikari no Hashi~” (Over the rain 〜ひかりの橋〜) is the song for a TV drama Bloody Monday. In October 2008, they released a digital single named "Hana ni Nare" (花になれ).
flumpool concocted their name by taking the ‘f’ from the word ‘four’ (the number of members), and adding the words ‘lump’ and ‘pool’. So in other words these guys are a ‘collective mass of four’, or a ‘quartet’ if you will.
