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,”

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”.
