‘Tasmania’ is the brand new album from Australian adventurers POND, released 1st March 2019. A dejected meditation on planetary discord, machismo, shame, blame and responsibility, love, blood and empire, wrapped in luxurious, funky prog-pop, Tasmania further progresses the bands ever expanding musical canon.
Once again produced and mixed by Kevin Parker and POND, ‘Tasmania’ coats an undercurrent of restless, anxious dread in a sheen of light, apathetic content. Rather than wallowing in self-pity, the album encourages us to celebrate the fruits of our planet, frolic in the ocean, kick up the dust, roll in the grass and enjoy the feeling of being in love – while we still can.
‘Tasmania’ follows the release of 2017’s acclaimed record ‘The Weather’. A defining statement for POND, the rapturously received ‘The Weather’ was a fearless and intriguing document which laid the blueprint for the kaleidoscopic array ideas exhibited on ‘Tasmania’. Since the release of ‘The Weather’, POND have toured the globe extensively, performing their biggest headline shows of their career thus far. Having already been confirmed for Primavera Sound Festival 2019, further dates are to be announced soon.
