COLOUR: 'Freo Edition' purple & white EXTRAS: Limited Edition
Featuring blissed out album track Toast, elastic-hipped robo-funk single America’s Cup and the high energy, no-wave lead track Pink Lunettes, on 9, Pond recapture an anarchic sense of uncertainty and fly closer than ever before to the creative supernova that has blazed across so much of the band’s music.
Produced by Pond and mixed by Jay Watson and James Ireland, on 9, Pond’s explorations are funnelled into electrifying bursts of pure psych-pop joy. No tune even veers past the five minute mark. Above all though, what you get from 9 is a sense of creative abandon and just plain fun.
