Aussie psych group Pond – fronted by former Tame Impala guitarist Nicholas Allbrook – will release their newest album early next month, titled The Weather. Adding to the hype the previously released title track has cultivated, the quartet has now shared “Paint Me Silver,” the newest tease from the Kevin Parker produced album. Euphoria seems to run rampant throughout the track, its bright, shimmering synth practically oozing out of every second. Previously, the band was known for their quirky, unpredictable demeanors, with more emphasis placed on fun, scuzzy effects and trippy soundscapes. But here, it’s smooth and sleek, the band no doubt ultimately ready to be taken seriously as pysch contenders.
The Weather will be released on May 5th.
