POND have shared new single “Pink Lunettes” along with an accompanying visualiser directed by Jamie Terry. This is the Australian psych-rock/ pop outfits first single since their 2019 album Tasmania.

The new single sees the band take a more electro-pop disco approach to their sound, moving away from the synth rock style of Tasmania and The Weather. It’s groovy, hypnotic and has a comical undertone as Allbrook sings “Suck your mothers face” over one chorus.

Speaking on the new single frontman Nicholas Allbrook said

“I think we managed to jitter along the neon tightrope between totally unhinged, strobing spontaneity and focused forward momentum,”

JADE IMAGINE – YOU REMIND ME OF SOMETHING I LOST EP

Jade Imagine return with the follow to last years ‘Basic Love’. Recorded around the same time as the album, this new EP shines a different light on the Jade Imagine sound, offering a more minimalistic feel through sparse instrumentation and ambient textures. Includes previously released single ‘Coastal Pines’.

GUM – OUT IN THE WORLD

Jay Watson is certainly a busy boy. Being a full time member of both pysch-rock powerhouses Tame Impala and POND, he’s somehow found time to record the follow up to 2018’s ‘The Underdog’. Another album full of psychedelic bangers and funky grooves to get lost in. Includes previously released singles ‘Out In The World’ and ‘Don’t Let It Go Out’.

LEAH SENIOR – THE PASSING SCENE

Frequent King Gizzard collaborator and storyteller Leah Senior returns with the follow up to 2017’s ‘Pretty Faces’. Infused with elements of folk, country and soft rock with Senior’s signature poetic voice and witty lyrics as the driving force. Includes previously released single ‘Evergreen’.

JEHNNY BETH – TO LOVE IS TO LIVE

Inspired by how David Bowie crafted his final LP, Blackstar, with the knowledge that it would be his farewell so it had to be meaningful, Beth set out to make her own defining statement with To Love Is to Live. What she came up with sounds nothing like her past projects, with its open-diary lyrics and extraterrestrial electronic soundscapes that seem to blend together. – Words from Rolling Stone

Jay Watson of GUM – Sam Kristofski

Jay Watson (GUM, Pond, Tame Impala) has announced a new solo album set to be released on June 12th via Spinning Top.

The album titled ‘Out In The World’ features the single of the same name and and ‘Don’t Let It Go Out’ which was released yesterday. The album can be pre-ordered here.

This is Watson’s first solo album in 2 years since 2018’s ‘The Underdog’ and his fifth solo album to date. Recorded in between touring with Tame Impala and Pond, Watson said in a recent interview with NME: “Because of Tame and to a lesser extent Pond, I don’t have a day job,” laughs Watson. “I haven’t had one now for a long time, almost a decade. I’m really lucky in that respect so I think I actually have heaps of free time but in tiny little blocks, not necessarily a huge chunk”.
