POND – “Sunlight Cardigan” (Stereogum Premiere)
Australian trio POND share a member with Tame Impala — you’re bound to dig them if you’re into that other crew’s expansive MGMT-meets-Lennon psychedelia. The piano-streaked “Sunlight Cardigan” appears on their fourth collection FROND, an album that mixes cosmic space-outs (“The Place Behind A Duck”) and duskier nighttime excursions (“Torn Asunder”) with plenty of bright clap-along struts (“Cloud City”). “Sunlight” is a soft, balladic moment. You wouldn’t be wrong to think about Elton John or Bowie while you refill your lighter.
