Pond have released new cut "Human Touch" today (1 September) as the fourth preview of their upcoming ninth album 9.
Following the release of "Toast", "America's Cup" and "Pink Lunettes", Pond have unveiled "Human Touch", which frontman Nick Allbrook says was inspired by a woman "smashing up a car outside my house."
He explains, "One time a woman was smashing up a car outside my house, begging me to help her steal it. It was a lovely day. She was wired but sweet in a way. Her dog, Josie, was sitting in the passenger seat being very cute and fluffy. We talked for a good few hours in the sunny cul-de-sac and neither of us ended up committing grand theft auto. The music started with a grimey Casio loop Jay made, that we built the song around."
