Band Of The Week: Week 1 —— Pond
1. Who are Pond?
Pond is a psychedelic rock band from Perth, Western Australia, formed in 2008 with members Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson and Joseph Ryan. Later on Jamie Terry and Cam Avery joined the band.
The original idea of Pond was to be able to get anyone they wanted to play whatever they wanted in a collaborative musical project.
Their first album was released soon after in January 2009, titled Psychedelic Mango. Their second album, Corridors of Blissterday, was completed live, and released in June 2009.
After the success of Tame Impala's 2010 debut album Innerspeaker, a band that shares three members with Pond, the album Beard, Wives, Denim was recorded in 2010 and later released to critical acclaim in March 2012.
Pond are currently touring with another album titled Hobo Rocket.
Another album titled Man, It Feels Like Space Again is set to be recorded and released after the release of Hobo Rocket (now available).
