Pond, a psychedelic rock band from Perth, Western Australia, will come to rock Thai audiences at a concert being staged at Nakarin Space on November 21.



The rockers, featuring Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson, Joe Ryan and Jamie Terry, are just about to start a tour of Asia, kicking off with a gig in Tokyo, before travelling to Taipei and Hong Kong. 

Pond was formed in Perth, Western Australia, in 2008 by Allbrook, Jay and Ryan as a collaborative musical project.

Their first album was “Psychedelic Mango” which contained many psychedelic rock and pop elements. Their second album, “Corridors of Blissterday”, was completed live with an eight piece band in five days, and released in June 2009. This led to the creation of their 2010 album, “Frond”, released in May 2010, featuring a heavier pop influence than previously heard from them.

After the breakthrough success of “Innerspeaker”, the debut album by Tame Impala, a band which shares three members with Pond, the album “Beard, Wives, Denim” was recorded in 2010 and later released to critical acclaim.

Pond toured the United States in 2012, appearing at festivals such as South by Southwest and was named by NME magazine “The Hottest New Band In The World” in their “Hot List” issue.

Tickets are Bt2,000 available at Thai Ticket Major. Nakarin Space is on Srinakarin Road.
