Pond Wade Deep Into New Album

Perth band POND is inviting you to dive down deep into their murky depths with the announcement of their next album and a brand new video to go with it.

Over a couple of months Nick, Joe, Jay, Jamie, Lukas, Cam and a parade of friends and well-wishers cobbled together a mountain of tape and emerged with Man It Feels Like Space Again, which is set to be released January 26th 2015.


“It had already been worked out,” Nick Allbrook notes, “but in the spirit of impulsiveness and lunacy it got shattered and scattered and pissed on and blow-dried in a small studio in Collingwood, Melbourne.”

Man It Feels Like Space Again lives up to the inherent wonder in its title, a sweeping collection of warm, warped psychedelic gems. It brings to mind the work of The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, mid-‘70s Lennon, MGMT, Todd Rundgren, Supergrass and any number of other genre-hopping sonic/space-explorers.

In its 45 minutes, the album covers an extraordinary amount of ground. Opener Waiting Around For Gracesounds like an FM pop hit beamed in from a nearby planet, all wonky propulsion and giddy hooks - the perfect opening blast. Lead single, Elvis’ Flaming Star stomps like a ‘70s glam band coached by Bowie, before collapsing into and out of a mid-tune daydream.

If you can’t wait till next year to hear these spacey sounds then blast off a little early with the film clip for Elvis, Flaming Star below.
