Just last year, POND released their most recent album, The Weather, but they’ve already got new music locked and loaded. Late last week, they dropped a new song, “Sixteen Days.”
This poppier cut is less of an earful than “Burnt Out Star,” the eight-minute jam they dropped in July. Both feature production by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, who was also formerly a member of POND.
“Sixteen Days” has also received a bizarre video treatment. Directed by Kristofski (who’s also shot videos for Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Kirin J Callinan and The Jezabels), it finds POND performing their song live in a television studio. That’s not that weird in itself—but throw in a zany, shirtless frontman and several greased-up weightlifters moonlighting as cameramen, and you’ve got something truly special.
