Pond – Australian Psych Rock Band
Australian psychedelic rock band Pond formed in Perth amid the scene which also spawned Tame Impala. In fact, Tame Impala's Kevin Parker served as Pond's drummer for a bit and Pond guitarist Nick Allbrook and drummer Jay Watson were members of Tame Impala's touring band for years (Watson is still a dual member of both bands.) In addition to Allbrook and Watson, Pond consists of guitarist/bassist Joe Ryan and keyboardist Jamie Terry.
Pond released their first two albums between 2009-2010 and attracted international attention with the release of their third and fourth albums, 2010's Frond and 2012's Beard, Wives and Denim. After a successful worldwide tour supporting Beard, Wives and Denim, Pond was named the “hottest band in the world right now” by NME. Their latest album is 2017's The Weather, which was produced by Kevin Parker and is the band's seventh full-length album overall. They are currently on a fall tour of North America.Less
