New Music: Pond- Giant Tortoise + Music Video
I am late to the party on this band. I knew Australian psych rock band Pond shared a record label with their country mates Tame Impala, but did not know the two groups were so tied together. Pond employs the help of both of Tame Impala's bassist Nick Allbrook and drummer Jay Watson plus lead singer Kevin Parker often contributes to their music, as well. Pond comes off a little heavier than their laid back counterparts as demonstrated by their latest song "Giant Tortoise" taken from the band's forthcoming new LP, Hobo Rocket, which comes out August 6th via Modular.
Watch the video for "Giant Tortoise" below and if you like the song, go and grab a free download here.
For fans of Tame Impala, Jack White.
