Australian stoners Pond to bring ‘Tasmania’ to the UK

From the same scene that spawned Tame Impala, Perth psych group Pond are back from a four year break with their new technicolour project ‘Tasmania.’

Known for their hazy, fluid, bass led productions, Pond have often seen themselves as being on the wrong side of the pond;  spawning Nick Allbrook’s essay ‘Creative Darwinism: Pretty Flowers Grow In Shit’. It’s this geographical isolation that brought the band into the baron and often harsh deserts of Tasmania.

The album, produced by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, is an expansive addition to Perth’s ‘stoner music’ scene, branching further than the funk led bass and reflective melancholy. Now, with their seventh studio effort, produced between ocean swim breaks, the Aussies are ready to take their mature and blissful blend of synth, psych and irreverent mood shifts on tour across the UK.

Pond will play Birmingham at The Crossing, Digbeth on Saturday, November 2nd. See their full UK tour dates below.
