Watch: Pond - Midnight Mass (At The Market Street Payphone)

Space oddities Pond take it higher with the video for Hobo Rocket closer Midnight Mass (At The Market Street Payphone). Created by Australian filmmakers Jesse Smith and Jenna Eriksen, the clip follows a melodramatic reconstruction of a news broadcast from the 1980s as a space tragedy unfolds.

Watch: Pond - O Dharma

The latest track from Hobo Rocket to get the video treatment is O Dharma. Shot one afternoon at Lake Gwelup, the clip was created by pals at Krang Doogs, edited by Nathan Savage and filmed by Paul Kaminski. Using Super 8 film, the clip is part ethereal, part mind explosion and has some kind of Indian coloured dust thrown in for good measure.

Friday, December 13: The Gov, Adelade
Saturday, December 14: The Zoo, Brisbane
