With the new digital reissue of their 2017 album 'The Weather' - produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker - released this week, POND have shared a music video for ‘Fire In The Water’, a bonus track from the work.
Directed, filmed and edited by acclaimed visual artist Kristofski, the clip features POND frontman, Nicholas Allbrook dancing joyously through the streets of Tokyo.
Of the video's origin, Kristofski states: "Jay [Watson] hit me up on Instagram and said "Hey Kristio, do you wanna come meet us in Tokyo in two days and shoot a clip?" and then I was in Tokyo and by far it was the most rude trip of my life. We got lost a lot and kinda just followed Nick around because he kept wanting to find this rainbow bridge which I don't think ever existed. Sometimes we would just stop and film where ever we were.
"The original idea was Nick turning into a jellyfish, floating over the buildings looking down on all these people eating ramen and sushi but that idea didn't really fly. That was Nick's idea, by the way. I like how we have those koi fish in the clip, because they are like fire in the water. It was also Joe's birthday, which was nice."
