With their highly-anticipated new album set to land later this year, POND have now returned to share the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Toast' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed and edited by the band and Alex Haygarth, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'America's Cup' and 'Pink Lunettes' in previewing their new LP '9', which is out on the 1st October via Spinning Top Records / Secretly Distribution.
Speaking about the new offering, frontman Nick Allbrook said, “The intro chords came from a Joe Ryan demo mysteriously titled Toast. I’ve never asked Joe why he landed on that name, and I probably never will, but it pointed toward the image of fat-headed gobblers touching flutes of bubbles, watching the End of Days gallop over the horizon. I often wonder about those people - the money hoarders, climate change deniers, earth-pilferers and adventure capitalists - are they nihilists or anarchists or do they really believe they are to be saved by some Rock Opera Jesus? We may never know, but here is Toast, which is hopefully as smooth as the smooth, smooth sailing of our glorious leaders fat old white lives."
While Jay Watson added about the video, “We filmed the clip on a green screen in an abandoned garden centre in one continuous take. It cost us $300 to make (the price of four takes worth of champagne). I ate five fried eggs over the course of it. Another instalment in a long series of homemade Pond videos."
