In Pond’s universe, nothing stays still for long. Although no one who heard 2019’s Tasmania could possibly describe its pulsating psych-pop as straight, Pond wanted to try a more spontaneous way of working for their next record.

Taking a leaf out of krautrock outliers Can’s book, at the start of 2020, Pond embarked on a series of totally off-the-cuff jam sessions from which songs and ideas could be pulled out.

Given the pace at which ideas whizz past your head, it makes for a dizzying listen. Opener "Song For Agnes" explodes out the speakers like an intergalactic rock opera, running a synapse-tingling gauntlet through bubbling synth-pop, 80s hair metal, and blissed-out saxophone before you know what's hit you.

It’s an apposite curtain-raiser for an album that can encompass pounding techno "Human Touch", elastic hipped Robo-funk "America’s Cup," tripped out motorik "Czech Locomotive," and acres more besides without even stopping for breath. Take lead single "Pink Lunettes," which opens up thumping like ESG eight hours into a session at Berghain before climbing aboard a gargantuan synthship and disappearing off over the horizon.
