WATCH: Pond Share “The Boys Are Killing Me” Super-8 Video
The clip for the Tasmania single comes with a series of fall tour dates.
Over the course of eight albums, Pond have established themselves as the bizarro Tame Impala, with both Autralian bands trading members in their early years. Whereas Tame Impala has specialized in cool and collected psych rock, Pond have always been a little more out there, with singer Nicholas Allbrook making each live show as memorable as possible.
Earlier this year they released the Kevin Parker–produced Tasmania LP, featuring the operatic standout single “The Boys Are Killing Me.” With today’s news of an impending fall U.S./U.K. tour, the band is sharing a video for the track comprised of super-8 footage of the Boys taking it easy on their last U.K. tour—notably also including moments of Allbrook’s Yorke-ian dance moves to match the song’s intensity. Directed by Jay Watson, the clip fades out with footage of Pond playing live, directed by Julien Barbagallo.
