Pond was born under a mulberry tree in Daglish, Western Australia, by Joseph Ryan, Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson.
In the next few years Pond recorded three albums and played a bunch of shows in around Australia and Japan, supporting MGMT and playing at the St. Jerome's Laneway Festival.
Their latest album, Beard Wives Denim was recorded in 2010, at a friend's farmhouse in Eagle Bay, Western Australia, and mixed by Kevin Parker and Rob Grant. Beard Wives Denim is an audio diary of ten friends' strange, terrible and blissful time in the country trying in vain to be a wholesome family band.
Beard Wives Denim will be released through Modular Recordings in early 2012, in the meantime, here's a taste of what's to come with this free download of 'Fantastic Explosion of Time'. Pre-order now, Mod Shop, JB Hi Fi.
