Pond - The Weather album review
Cosmic concept vibes from Tame Impala alumni
Over the last decade or so, the progressive scene in Australia seems to have gained strength and confidence and spread its tendrils across the globe, with Tame Impala and Karnivool making great strides out of the southern hemisphere with vastly different but equally thought-provoking music. Maybe it’s all that sunshine encouraging them to bloom.
Pond’s multi-instrumentalist Jay Watson and frontman/multi-instrumentalist Nick Allbrook have both come from the Tame Impala finishing school (the former is still a full-time member of both bands). But while Pond share some of their dreamlike psychedelia, they have followed their own path, a journey that continues in fine style on their seventh release.
