Aussie psyche magicians Pond are bringing their insane new album The Weather to Bristol, and not being there is not an option.
Pond have been going for a few years now, churning out mind-bending psyche that proved to be the extroverted cousin to Tame Impala’s introverted sound. Indeed the band share more than just musical similarities to fellow Aussies Tame Impala, with a number of them being either past or present members of the band.
The band’s new album has pushed them to the next level, turning their often ramshackle 60’s throwbacks into big, pulsating pop gems. How they plan on recreating the crushing bass of ‘30000 Megaton’ or ‘Colder Than Ice’ live is even more than the prospect of hearing old hits like ‘Moth Wings’ and ‘Giant Tortoise’ in the dark bowels of Thekla.
