[Video] Pond - The Weather





From the upcoming album 'The Weather' by Australian psychsters Pond’s (released on May 5 via Marathon Artists) comes the visuals to the title track.

Utilising found footage of excess and the capitalist ideal, juxtaposed with footage of fighter jets and forest fires, the video to ‘The Weather’ nods toward the human condition at its most nihilistic.

Says the band's Nick Allbrook: “What does one do in the Worst Case Scenario? Our friend Evelyn told about an old game - a card game or something - called ‘The Worst Case Scenario Survival Game’. ‘The Weather’ is about reality’s penchant for unearthly deceleration in moments of total disaster and panic (micro and macro), and the real - flawed and silly and irredeemably human - humans who experience them. In these moments - when there is no more fan for the shit to hit - the once vain and frivolous pleasures of life seem so… not.”

POND head to the UK and Europe in Mayincluding a show at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town. Tickets are available now from pondband.net.
