Former Tame Impala bassist Nick Allbrook left that band last year to concentrate on fronting his own Aussie psych-rock project, POND. The two bands still share multiple members, though, and you can definitely hear POND as the shaggier, zonked-out cousin to Tame Impala’s technicolor explorations. Today, Allbrook and co. announce a new album, Man It Feels Like Space Again, coming in January. They’ve also shared a lo-fi silly-string-and-water-balloon-fest of a video for glammy, aggressively tuneful lead single “Elvis’ Flaming Star.” It does a good job of capturing both the joy and the weirdness inherent to their music, and you can watch it below.
Man It Feels Like Space Again is out 1/27 in the US.
