The members of Tame Impala that aren’t Kevin Parker love creating music as a group and outside of Tame Impala you’ll find them jamming as part of POND. It’s a side-project of sorts but you’ll hear influences from other 60’s and 70’s bands whereas Kevin Parker’s Tame Impala project explores specific 70’s influences. They released Beards, Wives, Denim last year, a collection of songs that had recorded a while back. It looks like they have a follow up ready to go and they released the first track “Tortoise” earlier today. It’s a killer track that builds off what they’ve (presumably) learned from Tame Impala. I couldn’t be more excited for the full record to hit soon.
