POND takes us to the celestial heights of the galaxy and our imagination with their new single “Burnt Out Star.” With spatial metaphors and enigmatic choruses that exude melancholia, “Burnt Out Star” feels like the story of a celeb’s downfall from A-list to B-list. That’s one way to interpret it. The track also feels like a therapeutic piece dedicated to any overworked, exhausted earthling. Enjoy below:
