POND are sharing a holiday greeting with this fun video for “All I Want For Christmas (Is a Tascam 388)” from their newest album, The Weather.The video features band member “Shiny Joe Ryan” in a Santa suit and tinseled glory. It was directed by fellow member Jamie Terry and shot in their home town of Fremantle, Western Australia.
POND will also be returning to the U.S. in January for their first North American tour in over 6 months. Highlights include Warsaw in Brooklyn on January 11th and a return to Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles on January 24th. Due to high demand, the band is pleased to announce a second Los Angeles show at Zebulon on January 25th. The Nashville show at the High Watt on January 16th has also sold out and will be moved to Mercy Lounge with more tickets being released. Tickets for the U.S. tour are on sale now. The New York based Australian artist and POND label-mate, Fascinator will open all dates.
The Weather was released earlier this year. Produced by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker– it captures POND at their finest. Fresh psych-rock soundscapes envelope tales that manage to be sober, surreal, intimate, and out of this world all at the same time. At once both obsessed with today’s tumultuous global attitudes (“30000 Megatons”) and as detached from them as humanly possible (“Paint Me Silver”), The Weather provides ideal terrain for both engagement and escapism.
