Single Review – Pond – Paint Me Silver

Glowing alien forms, which look as though they may have been created on some low budget Sketchup like software, dance in hypnotic repetition to a spiral of synths and surfer rock guitar as the threat of impending nuclear war begins to surround them. No this is not a strange unseen demo clip of the eighth Star Wars instalment but Australian band Pond’s latest video. A celestial reflection of an unsettled time ‘Paint Me Silver’ is the latest release in the run up to new album ‘The Weather’ due 5th May. Incorporating the band’s insanely layered synths and falsetto vocals ‘Paint Me Silver’ is a dreamlike Tame Impale style electro-pop track that hints at the otherworldly rock opera style ‘The Weather’ could turn out to be.
