Since the beginning, POND wrote music and produced records faster than a label could release them. POND followed up Psychedelic Mango within months, releasing Corridors of Blissterday, a frenzied effort recorded live with an eight-piece band in 2009. A year later, their third album Frond, a kaleidoscopic classic, dripping with funk and falsetto, loosely inspired by a diet consisting only of Prince and Fleetwood Mac, delighted audiences Australia-wide. Fronds release finally realised industry attention and praise, solidifying the band and their music in its own right. Beard, Wives and Denim, their 4th album, was recorded on a farm a few hours South-West of Perth. Beard, Wives, Denim is a triumph of the eclecticism and good humor that drives POND.Upon Beard, Wives, Denim release in March 2012, global attention shined its light upon the Perth gang. A North American tour ensued, smashing through 31 shows including 8 at South by South West where they were one of the most talked about bands of the festival. From there, they returned home to Australia and sold out a national tour before storming UK and Europe, causing NME to tout them as the hottest band in the world right now as well as proclaiming Beard, Wives, Denim as quite possibly the best album released so far this year.In August 2013, POND gifted to the world their 5th LP in as many years, Hobo Rocket. Hobo Rocket is 40 minutes of perfectly imperfect emotion, challenging veteran listeners and music reviewers with an evolved and vigorous sound. Singer Nick Allbrook describes the release as the kind of mindset of finding our own little place in music, and being more of a functioning band, which is what makes it noisier and denser. This one we went as brutally hard as we would at a show. We wanted the songs to sound loose and live.Enthusiasts and music aficionados world-wide agree MIFLSA is PONDs most focused composition to date. This mirrors their touring efforts, dynamic and enthralling live show, media buzz and essentially, the maturation of a musical career a long time in the making. Maybe its not such a bad thing growing up, especially when its this much fun!
