[VIDEO] Pond: Elvis’ Flaming Star
Although the Aussie-boys of Pond hail from the land down-under, every new venture seems to find them exploring the space overhead. In 2013 we were graced with Hobo Rocket, an expansive work of interstellar-psych grounded by it’s headbanging guitar hooks, and less than a year later, signs of a new album are flickering in a not-so-distant sky. Seeing it’s release January 26th via Caroline Records, Man It Feels Like Space Again is spearheaded by the dancehall-ready “Elvis’ Flaming Star” and it’s equally far out video counterpart.
Guided by a bass as wholesome and untouched as grandma’s secret chili recipe, the group embellish the tune with spacey synths and slow, contemplative interludes. While Nick Allbrook’s vocals reverberate through the stratosphere, tambourines are struck alongside handclaps and shimmering organs. The video shows the band bouncing through a backyard and engaging in dress-up antics as silly as the string they’re blasted with at the video’s start. So, clear yourself for lift-off and float about the galactic bliss of this appetizing single while we wait for Pond’s next adventure into the final frontier.
