POND fans didn’t have to wait too long for new tunes because the industrious band are back at it only a year after dropping their last album. The psychedelic rockers have just revealed a new track “Burnt Out Star,” and it is everything you have come to expect from the band.
The song opens with a dreamy guitar-violin harmony before a synth bossa nova beat kicks in, and frontman Nick Allbrook’s hazy vocals take center stage. The song is lengthy—even by the band’s standards—but that’s excusable because it feels like a well-paced journey. With a blend of smooth R&B and the act’s signature psychedelic pop-rock sound, the track lulls you into a state of tranquility.
We’re unsure if this track heralds a new album, but the band have announced new tour dates—which begin in October—that will take them across North America. More information about the dates at pondband.net.
