POND: Live in Singapore
LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce psychedelic songsters will perform in Singapore with local synth-pop musician, The Analog Girl, as part of the Rising Star Series, on Thursday, 23 November, 2017 at Esplanade Annexe Studio!
Hailing from Perth, Australia’s POND formed in 2008 after good friends Joseph Ryan (Mink Mussel Creek), Nick Allbrook (Mink Mussel Creek, Allbrook/Avery, Tame Impala, Peter Bibby & His Bottles of Confidence), and Jay Watson (Tame Impala) hit upon the idea of an all inclusive, ego-free collaborative, so the boys immediately recorded their debut album Psychedelic Mango with a little help from good friend Kevin Parker (Tame Impala).
“Pond’s live show is comprised of spectacular moments… The psych-pop jesters spun
old and new tunes into pure entertainment gold”. – San Francisco Weekly
In August 2013, POND gifted to the world their 5th LP in as many years, Hobo Rocket. Hobo Rocket is 40 minutes of perfectly imperfect emotion, challenging veteran listeners and music reviewers with an evolved and vigorous sound. Singer Nick Allbrook describes the release as the “…kind of mindset of finding our own little place in music, and being more of a functioning band, which is what makes it noisier and
denser. This one we went as brutally hard as we would at a show. We wanted the songs to sound loose and live.” Pond then went ahead to release their seventh LP, ‘The Weather’ in May 2017. The Weather is Pond’s seventh long-player, their own baffled, if ever madcap barometric reading of the geo-political situation (amongst others), in mind-bendingly excellent album form.
About the Rising Star – THE ANALOG GIRL
What started out as a lo-fi bedroom project using portable synthesizers and cassette tape recorders has since evolved into some kind of dreamlike technicolour pop universe – one in which Singaporean musician The Analog Girl creates and performs using a myriad of illuminating electronic instruments including the Tenori-On, Monome and Percussa AudioCubes. Named by TIME magazine as one of 5 Music Acts To
Watch in 2008, The Analog Girl has had audiences worldwide plugged into her adventurous sound at a spectrum of venues and festivals including CMJ Music Festival in New York, Nick Knightʼs SHOWstudio Revue in London, Worldtronics Festival at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the Cirque Electrique in Paris, Superdeluxe in Tokyo and Mosaic Music Weekend at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay in Singapore.
“A shamaness of moods, Wong commands an enviable handle on dream pop and
minimal techno thatʼs resulted in music that hews to a particularly dark vein.” – JUICE
With a brand new album out this year titled Golden Sugar Crystals, her fourth studio release and her first in 5 years, The Analog Girl has never been more psyched to play live. Highlights include its lead single ʻWhat You Are Showing Me Is A Fantasyʼ which was handpicked by Apple Music for Best of the Week Playlist, and second single ‘More Than You Know’ that was showcased on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction with Nick Luscombe.
