  • Pond Announces New Album “Stung!”, Shares New Song “(I'm) Stung”

  • Australian psychedelic rock band Pond, consisting of Nick Allbrook (vocals), 'Shiny' Joe Ryan (guitar), Jay 'GUM' Watson (drums), Jamie Terry (keyboards) and James 'Gin' Ireland (drums), has announced that their tenth studio album “Stung!” will be released on June 21, 2024.

    The album is their first LP in three years since the 2021 album “9” and comprises a 14-track
    The band recorded the album at their friend's studio in Dunsborough and completed it after nearly a year of writing and workshopping.
    From the album, the band released a new song “(I'm) Stung” along with a music video on March 27, 2024.
    The song is the second single off of the album, following “Neon River”.
    It was written by James Ireland, Jamie Terry, Jay Watson, Joseph Ryan, and Nicholas Allbrook. Produced by Pond.
  • The band lead singer Nick Allbrook, said of the song, “I wrote most of this while mowing someone's lawn. I went home and put my fingers on the piano and pretty much played the base of it first go. This is a very rare and special treat and buoyed me for weeks. It's funny because I had a mad crush on someone, and they dropped me like a sack of shit and this song just flew down and clocked me right in the forehead and I felt totally better. Then Gin and Gum added all their magic - cool sounds, passing chords..It's about being totally pathetically stung by someone and just having to be cool with it being unrequited. Being resilient, accepting that you are a bit of a goose, but life goes on.”

  • The video was directed by Pond. Chris Adams filmed the video in Western Australia.

    The band said of the video, “We went to Lancelin, one of the most stereotypically Western Australian looking places in Western Australia, armed with a super 8 camera, 12 tubes of silver body paint and a rock eisteddfod wardrobe. Nothing but the blistering heat and dehydration and a battalion of legendary holidaymakers in ATVs stood between us and cinema history. Our friend Chris Adams also put on his little “filmic auteur” cap and carried our shit around while we cavorted among the dunes dressed like a knock off NSYNC. Omg and the bee!! The bee obviously makes it. Nick kind of lost his mind in the endless whiteness and started fearfully battling the beast in the sky. Probably all the paint fumes."
