Pond have unveiled visuals to the title track of their forthcoming album The Weather. Utilising found footage of excess and the capitalist ideal, juxtaposed with footage of fighter jets and forest fires, the video to ‘The Weather’ nods toward the human condition at its most nihilistic.
Of the song, Pond’s Nick Allbrook says: “What does one do in the Worst Case Scenario? Our friend Evelyn told about an old game – a card game or something – called ‘The Worst Case Scenario Survival Game’.
“‘The Weather’ is about reality’s penchant for unearthly deceleration in moments of total disaster and panic (micro and macro), and the real – flawed and silly and irredeemably human – humans who experience them. In these moments – when there is no more fan for the shit to hit – the once vain and frivolous pleasures of life seem so… not.”
‘The Weather’ is taken from the album of the same name, released May 5th via Marathon Artists. Pond have previously streamed one of their finest pop laced singles ‘Sweep Me Off My Feet’ and the startling album opener ‘30000 Megatons’.
POND will shortly begin a US and Canadian tour, beginning with a show at this years Coachella. POND will bring their incendiary live show to Europe in May for a massive run of dates, including a show at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town.
