Single Review – Pond – “Elvis” Flaming Star

Perth’s Pond are to return with their sixth studio album on January 26th in their recent announcement for Man it feels like Space Again. Following on from last year’s Hobo Rocket; current and former Tame Impala members such as Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson and Cam Avery will be looking to better their fifth studio effort which was solid and musically flamboyant, yet this did not stretch out to the whole album which was at times lacking diversity. It was in fact one of the few weak points of the album which leaves a lot of optimism for their next LP. Their new track ‘”Elvis” Flaming Star’ has a more indelible rhythmic twist in comparison to their previous year’s work, with the hand claps, snappy percussion and sharp rhythm guitar sections. These are anchored by a rapid bass line and strung out via the echoed and loose fitting vocals. The track’s structure momentarily falls through the trap draw for a spaced out interlude before launching back into the infectious rhythms. A bold and exciting track that bodes well for their January release.
