Here’s What POND Looked Like Incarnate At The Echo

Unintentional Sapporo ad, semi-stage diving, & The Weather.

In case you’ve been missing out in life, Aussie quartet POND has been bombarding us with new eargasmic pieces that have juggled between internal and external chaos. Their new video, “The Weather,” took us into the chintzy seductive side of capitalism and at the same time reminded us of the fire that burns in our blind spots. The 4-piece dudefest have recently embarked on their international tour and just came fresh out of their sold-out show at The Echo (Los Angeles). Seeing POND live is a claustrophobic love relationship: Nick Allbrook joins the crowd, makes one stage diving attempt, Joe Ryan targets you with Sapporo ad (his next career move is beer influencer), Jamie Terry doesn’t move much, and apologies to the drummer whom we couldn’t snap as much…the venue was grossly packed at its most glorious form:

Unintentional Sapporo product placement…or was it?
