Six things you need to know about Pond
After already embracing psychedelia, rock, glam and more, they’ve just come up with their most expansive album yet
Good luck nailing the sound of Pond. Since forming in 2008, the Australian quartet – Nick Allbrook, Joe Ryan, Jay Watson and Jamie Terry – have released a succession of kaleidoscopic albums bursting with psychedelia, pop-art, glam, space-rock and more besides.
Produced by Tame Impala vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker, The Weather, Pond’s seventh album, is their most dazzlingly expansive yet. “We all bring our songs to the table, in varying degrees of completion, and from there they get ‘Pond-ified’,” says Ryan. “We try to take it up a notch with every album.”
