Pond Details

Pond

Pond, an Australian rock band, toppled the stateliness of Britpop anthems into psychedelic turbulence, melting down grandiose riffs or pushing them toward screaming tantrums.” from sleazy rock excess, to introspective, cracked psychedelia and back again Pondare very good at nailing tracks with best-of-both worlds approach, fusing those indulgent chunks of far-outness with fundamentally solid rock’n’roll tunes.

Just as the sun revolves around the Earth, so does the nation’s psychedelic pop scene revolve around Pond. Formed in 2008 after good friends Joseph Ryan (Mink Mussel Creek), Nick Allbrook (Mink Mussel Creek, Allbrook/Avery and former Tame Impala stalwart) and Jay Watson (Tame Impala) hit upon the idea of an all inclusive, ego-free collaborative, the boys immediately recorded their debut album “Psychedelic Mango” with a little help from good friend Kevin Parker (the mastermind behind Tame Impala).

Not content to sit on their laurels Pond followed up less than a year later with “Corridors of Blissterday,” a frenzied effort recorded live with an eight piece band at some point (nobody seems to remember exactly when) in 2009. Next up was “Frond,” their third album released in 2010 on the back of a serious Prince and Fleetwood Mac binge. This was the point at which things really began to kick off for the lads. “Frond” was a kaleidoscopic classic, dripping with funk and falsetto which hinted at the fact that Pond was maybe a little more than just a footloose collective of ridiculously talented young men.
