Pond Share New Single ‘So Lo’

Pond have shared a new single, ‘So Lo’, which will appear on their upcoming album Stung!. It follows previous cuts ‘Neon River’ and ‘(I’m) Stung’. Check it out below.

“I think Gum was just messing around on guitar playing something fun and cheesy and then realized it could be cool in a kind of cold, concrete, No-Wave way,” the band’s Nicholas Allbrook shared in a statement. “I wrote the line about white dreads while waiting for a bus in Tottenham – maybe there were some hippies around, maybe there weren’t, who can really say where hippies are or aren’t at any given time… The words were ‘all these tablets got me breaking in two’ but when I first double tracked the vocals they were a bit out of time and gum thought I said, ‘these tummy tablets got me breaking in two’ which made us laugh, and thus, by the laws of Pond, became official. Some of the lyrics are sad honestly, about watching your future as you’d imagined it evaporate before your eyes – being haunted by ‘a child as brittle as paper’. Gum thought I was saying ‘horny badger, brittle as paper’ but that was a bridge too far, even for us. This song sort of skirts between being horrendously bleak and really dumb. The vocoder Gin and Gum put on ‘so European’ absolutely kills me.”

Stung! is set for release on June 21 via Spinning Top.
