Pond announce new concept album The Weather

25 January 2017, 14:08 | Written by Laurence Day

Australian psych collective Pond have announced new album The Weather and shared the video for lead single "Sweep Me Off My Feet".

"Sweep Me Off My Feet" was revealed last October, with follow up cut "30,000 Megatons" coming a month later.

The album was recorded with producer Kevin Parker - yep, the Tame Impala one - at his Perth studio. It's the follow up to 2015's Man, It Feels Like Space Again.

Pond's frontman Nicholas Allbrook says of the LP: "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. 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. 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."

As well as the new single and album details, Pond have confirmed an one-off date at London's Moth Club on Valentine's Day. Find out more.
