POND NEW LIVE ALBUM SESSIONS OUT NOW

Today, POND have released Sessions, an LP of live studio performances composed of songs from across their discography. The album was recorded while on tour in the EU this spring. The digital release is officially out now on Spinning Top/Interscope, and you can listen HERE. Prior to release, the band shared the exhilarating album cut “Don’t Look At The Sun (Or You’ll Go Blind),” a live, fan-favorite taken from the band’s 2009 debut LP Psychedelic Mango.

The band’s Jay Watson had the following to say on the genesis of Sessions: “We wanted to capture how the band has been playing live lately and commit that to tape while we were in the middle of a long tour. As you play the same song for years, or even as a single tour rolls on, the way you play the songs mutates. Little inflections and fills become part of the song, and the structures and even the overall feeling and intent of the songs change. I always loved listening to my favorite bands’ ‘Peel Sessions’ and wanted something of our own in that vein. We hope you dig it!”

Earlier this year, the prolific force from Perth released their 8th studio album, Tasmania – featuring “Daisy,” “Sixteen Days,” “Burnt Out Star” and “The Boys Are Killing Me” – on Interscope Records. The album was produced and mixed by POND and Kevin Parker and recorded in Fremantle, Western Australia. Tasmania acts as a sister album to 2017’s The Weather, POND’s most critically acclaimed album to date. “The album never wanders more than a few inches away from the sublime,” said Pitchfork. “It’s a document of a band knocking loudly on the door of greatness.”

“The eighth album from the Australian psych-rockers is their most melodically realized of their career. The strains of pop offer a lovely imprint of a band in a constant state of flux.
Growth comes in many forms, and the increasingly clued-in lyrical trajectory isn’t the only way in which Pond are changing.” – Pitchfork

“Despite such thematic concerns ‘Tasmania’ never feels like it is delving into preach-mode, because for all of the focus on urgent political topics the band never loses its deeply human approach that focalizes on small moments of intimacy to reveal the ways that the political contexts around us affect us in vivid and direct ways. Over burbling synths and cosmic jam sessions the soundscapes veer, but the innocently pensive voice at the core of it all unifies all of these threads into a quilt your psyched out grandmother knit to keep you warm whenever you needed to recharge” – Under The Radar

“Pond, an Australian rock band, toppled the stateliness of Britpop anthems into psychedelic turbulence, melting down grandiose riffs or pushing them toward screaming tantrums.” – New York Times
