What do you call a group of psychedelic songsters all grown up? A group who were often considered the younger sibling, who have come into their own? Artists who are about to release their best piece of work yet, and musicians who just unleashed one of the rowdiest and strongest live touring sets 2014 witnessed? You call them 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.” – New York Times
“From sleazy rock excess, to introspective, cracked psychedelia and back again” – Fader “Pond…are 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.” – Pitchfork
Hailing from Perth, Australia’s POND formed in 2008 after good friends Joseph Ryan (Mink Mussel Creek), Nick Allbrook (Mink Mussel Creek, Allbrook/Avery, Tame Impala, Peter Bibby & His Bottles of Confidence), and Jay Watson (Tame Impala) hit upon the idea of an all inclusive, ego-free collaborative, so the boys immediately recorded their debut album Psychedelic Mango with a little help from good friend Kevin Parker (Tame Impala).
Since the beginning, POND wrote music and produced records faster than a label could release.
