Pond Preview New Album

Australian psych-rock band Pond will release their fifth album, Hobo Rocket, this spring via Modular Recordings. In advance of the album’s release, the group has made the new song “Giant Tortoise” available here. Pond describe the song as “a lumbering slice of Cretaceous-era space-rock. In many ways it’s like a giant tortoise itself – heavy, slow and with a hard shell with a gooey-gooey inside. Straight from the parallel universe where POND are pop stars and the flanger reigns supreme. La Fusee Du Vagabond.” For more on Pond and their brother band Tame Impala, be sure to order the March issue of Relix.

Pond are on the road as part of the the first Australian stop on the 2013 Laneway Festival tour. The fest’s dates can be found below:
