POND announce new single "Zond"

POND have shared the video for new single "Zond", the latest cut severed from upcoming record Man It Feels Like Space Again.

Lord Fascinator directed the clip, and he's kindly shed some light on the bizarre antics:

"Probably the hardest part of making this was finding three elderly citizens who looked identical to what our computer projections told us Jay, Joe and Nick will look like in the twilight of their lives. The Jeff Koons inspired inflatable toy band was brilliantly sculpted by our monster maker, Hayley Callander. The conjoined twin scene was a little trickier as we used stem cells from each band member to grow an extra torso and head which we later sewed on. Now, normally this takes about 6 – 8 weeks but thanks to our friend and mentor Professor Vincenzi Vandella we were able to expedite this process in his Juggertron laboratory and have them available within mere hours.

The Ben Montero artwork makes the whole thing, really – as well as the characters themselves who, to be honest, I could have just shot walking through the supermarket and it would have been just as weird and funny."

Man It Feels Like Space Again is set for release 26 January.
