Pond preview new record with climactic single "30000 Megatons"

Australian psych-rock group Pond have revealed "30000 Megatons", a new single from their upcoming record.

"This song was going to be released with the rest of the album," the band write of the track. "...but today it seems like the right time."

The four-minute offering begins as an otherworldly ode with crackly synths and faraway vox echoing into oblivion. As each second ticks by Pond up the ante further until the song is a thriving knot of clipping electronics and tangled melody.

"30000 Megatons" follows last month's Kevin Parker-produced single "Sweep Me Off My Feet".
