Formation: The band formed in Perth, Australia. The original members were Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson, and Joe Ryan. The original idea for the band was for it to be a project where they could get anyone they wanted to play whatever they wanted, at any time.
Musical Career: In January 2009, Pond's first album was released. It was called "Psychedelic Mango". In just five days, a live 8-piece band created the bands' second album, "Corridors of Blissterday". It was released in June 2009. Their third album "Frond" was released in May 2010. "Beard, Wives, Denim" was released in March 2012, after the success of Tame Impala's 2010 album, "Innerspeaker". Pond actually shares three members with Tame Impala. In 2012, Pond toured the US. In 2012, they performed at festivals, including SXSW. NME named Pond "The Hottest New Band In The World" in May 2012. In June 2012, 'Can' frontman Damo Suzuki (One of Pond's biggest musical inspirations) performed with the band as a one-off show. Their album "Man, It Feels Like Space Again" was released on 23rd January 2015.
