Pond Announce Album, “Elvis Flaming Star”

Pond announce new album 'Man It Feels Like Space Again' out January 27th,

Hailing from Perth, Australia, POND formed in 2008 as an all-inclusive, ego-free collective spawned from numerous other interlocked bands and projects: Mink Mussel Creek, Allbrook/Avery, and Tame Impala. On January, 27th the world will get to experience the band’s new album, Man It Feels Like Space Again – their most striking statement to date. 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 that was stitched up to become POND’s sixth studio album.

“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.”

In its 45 minutes, the album covers an extraordinary amount of ground. Opener ‘Waiting Around For Grace’ sounds 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.
