Think TV On The Radio meets Tame Impala. Australia's Pond is a musical collective featuring an ever-changing line-up actually including three members of said Tame. Last month they delivered a brand new album entitled Beard, Wives, Denim. It's "an audio diary of ten friends' strange, terrible and blissful time in the country trying in vain to be a wholesome family band. It sounds just like it, distorted and woozy and fractured and ultimately nostalgic and loving."
In 2010, at a friend's farmhouse in Eagle Bay, Western Australia, Pond piled in with all their instruments, amplifiers, friends, recording equipment and Sam Ford to record Beard, Wives, Denim. After two weeks of Lord of the Flies-esque bonding with frisbee and guitars and absolutely no religion or wood chopping or wives or beards, the album was finished.
