POND – Australian Pysch Band Swing Moods On The Dancefloor With Their Best Album Yet – Here’s ‘9’

8 October 2021

Band: POND
who: Australian psych-rockers
featuring members of Tame Impala
Active: Since 2008 / 9 studio albums so far

New album: 9 – yep, their 9th LP
Released: 1 October 2021 – order info here

NME says: “It can be a risky game to thrown yourself into so many different styles
on a record, let alone within individual songs. Yet – from Bowie to Kurt Cobain and
William Burroughs – artists of all kinds have found joy in such surrealist methods of
cutting up their work and putting it back together. Having perhaps taken their psych
pop to the edges of what’s possible, Pond deserve this moment. Hopefully, it proves
a gateway to a new era for the band that keeps on giving.”

Full review here. Score: 8/10.

Turn Up The Volume: A mix of dazzling grooves you can start moshpits with
on the dancefloor (Song For Agnes / America’s Cup / Pink Lunettes / Rambo), and
musing ruminations to take a breath between moshpit madness (Take Me Avalon
I’m Young / Czech Locomotive / Cold Cup, Plastic Sole / Toast
). A bold and mood
swinging record. My score: 9/10.

Singles/clips: Pink Lunettes / America’s Cup / Toast
