Everywhere they go, POND take their new album ‘The Weather’ with them

Yep. We've just made a Crowded House joke.
POND have announced their new album ‘The Weather’ is set to drop later this year.

The Kevin Parker produced record will arrive on May 5th via Marathon Artists – also home to Courtney Barnett and Jagwar Ma. It’s led by brand new single ‘Sweep Me Off My Feet’, which you can stream the video of below.

Of the album, POND’s Nicholas Allbrook says: “It’s a concept album, not completely about Perth, but focusing on all the weird contradictory things that make up a lot of colonial cities around the world. Laying out all the dark things underneath the shimmering exterior of cranes, development, money and white privilege. It’s not our place, but it is our place. British, but Australian, but not REAL Australian. On the edge of the world with a hell of a lot of fucked things defining our little city, still we try and live a wholesome respectful life, while being inherently disrespectful. At the end of all this confusion in our weird little white antipodean world, there’s the beach, purity and nature that brings us all together”.

The band will hit the UK for an intimate show at London’s MOTH Club on 14th February. Because going to see POND is romantic, right?
