Not to be confused with the now defunct Portland, Oregon group of the same name, Pond is a group of psychedelic pop crusaders hailing from Perth in Western Australia. 'You Broke My Cool' is the latest single/video to come from the Aussie five-piece and features on their latest release Beard, Wives, Denim - released through Modular Recordings.
The nostalgic video was shot during the recording of their album, which has been gaining much interest and praise since it's release earlier this year. Shot by the band and a handful of friends, the sun-kissed video makes great use of split-screen as well as showing off the picturesque Perth countryside.
The video serves as an introductory aid for those outside of Australia who may not be aware of the band, hot on the heels of their debut European tour. Currently back home in Oz after wowing audiences over at this years SXSW and a follow-up North American tour, the psych-popsters will be taking on the European continent for a handful of festival appearances as well as some headline slots around the continent.
