Divus Julius presents…Pond

The Perth quartet’s psychedelic pop, who share blood type with Tame Impala, makes its way through an undergrowth of swampy instrumentations with melodic clearings. But, like any band with a lysergic disposition worthy of this name, they don’t have only one stylistic reality. That’s why there is an urban dimension of Pond as well –many songs are about Perth, their hometown–, their head is well set in the present – the inclusion of keyboards and chroming in their productions is far removed from the sixties and very much 21st century, and they have a very healthy curiosity for music that incites them to delve into other genres such as blue-eyed soul or pure and simple pop, without the prefix psych. They’ve return with their new album, Tasmania.
