POND have released a wicked new single from their new album 'Man It Feels Like Space Again'. With the release of their wicked new album fastly approaching this month on January 23 the psychedelic bunch will hit Australia soon. They will be appearing apart of the 2015 Laneway Festivals killer line up and also releasing details on some sideshows to celebrate the new album release. They willbe preforming February 3 headline at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel, and an intimate show at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on February 5.
Previous released tracks include ‘Sitting Up On Our Crane’ and lead single ‘Elvis’ Flaming Star’ giving you a taste of what to expect from the new album.
Lord Fascinator writes:
“Probably the hardest part of making this was finding three elderly citizens who looked identical to what our computer projections told us Jay, Joe and Nick will look like in the twilight of their lives. The Jeff Koons inspired inflatable toy band was brilliantly sculpted by our monster maker, Hayley Callander.
The conjoined twin scene was a little trickier as we used stem cells from each band member to grow an extra torso and head which we later sewed on. Now, normally this takes about 6 – 8 weeks but thanks to our friend and mentor Professor Vincenzi Vandella we were able to expedite this process in his Juggertron laboratory and have them available within mere hours.
The Ben Montero artwork makes the whole thing, really – as well as the characters themselves who, to be honest, I could have just shot walking through the supermarket and it would have been just as weird and funny”.
