By | Published on Thursday 26 January 2017


Pond have announced that they will release new album, ‘The Weather’, on 5 May. The news arrives with the first single and notice of an intimate London show.

“It’s a concept album, not completely about Perth, but focusing on all the weird contradictory things that make up a lot of colonial cities around the world”, says the band’s Nicholas Allbrook of the album. “Laying out all the dark things underneath the shimmering exterior of cranes, development, money and white privilege. It’s not our place, but it is our place. British, but Australian, but not REAL Australian”.

He goes on: “On the edge of the world with a hell of a lot of fucked things defining our little city, still we try and live a wholesome respectful life, while being inherently disrespectful. At the end of all this confusion in our weird little white antipodean world, there’s the beach, purity and nature that brings us all together”.

Ahead of the release, the band will play the Moth Club in Hackney on 14 Feb. Here’s the video for first single, ‘Sweet Me Off My Feet’:
