Pond announce Melbourne show at The Croxton for Australian tour

Pond

Pond has announced an east coast tour of Australia with a Melbourne show at The Croxton.

Following the release of their ninth studio album ‘9’, which debuted at #6 on the ARIA album chart, Pond are coming to Melbourne and the east coast.

Alongside a Perth Festival performance on Friday 11 February, the Fremantle five piece will take the stage at The Triffid in Brisbane on Thursday 7 April,  The Metro Theatre in Sydney on Friday 8 April, and The Croxton in Melbourne on Saturday 9 April.

To celebrate, they’ve revealed a new video for one of the singles, telling fans to get physical with frontman Nick Allbrook on the official video for Take Me Avalon I’m Young

Of the sprawling Take Me Avalon I’m Young, Allbrook states, “Turns out my medieval history degree is still lingering in the back streets of my mind. The final resting place of Arthur, the mythic isles where we could go for peace and prosperity but which turns out to be an expensive grey grind. A sense of wonder becomes more and more slippery as the years go by. I’m actually really proud of this tune.”

The athletic visual accompaniment was captured in the picturesque seaside town of Hastings, England and directed by award-winning filmmaker and creative director Bunny Kinney.

“This was, no joke, the most fun video I’ve ever been a part of. I spent two days rushing around Hastings with my dear friend Bunny and the lovely George, Joe and James Beatty, running, swimming, shooting, fencing and playing terrible basketball. It was a dream come true. The freezing sunrise yoga was magical in retrospect, even if I was a brat at the time (sorry Bunny). A perfect seaside weekend; I got to play, and Bunny got to create an ode to his favourite sport, the modern pentathlon. Massive thanks to Lewis and Steph for their patience and kindness as my instructors,” says Allbrook of the clip.

“We sort of gave ourselves permission to make something stuffed this time. We’d settled into a pretty tight routine with the last few albums and wanted to shake a boat with this so we started off with filling a few tape reels with some absolutely heinous improvised sonic babble which, after much sifting, became the first few songs of the album.”
