Interview: Pond At Fat As Butter 2012

Beard, Wives, Denim is the latest full-length release from Perth boys, Pond. It has seen the poppish indie jam outfit tick off a number of boxes, including their first release through a Major record label, as well as a meteoric rise to the top of many people’s ‘recently played’ playlists.

The release came from a not-too-orthodox approach to the recording process. As the boys tell Music Feeds, the team re-located to a farm near Eagle Bay, where they stocked up a small property with all their equipment and lived in eachother’s pockets for two weeks, smashing out all the tunes. They found inspiration for this in the annals of rock music, going back to their roots for a record.

The band also discuss how the presence of a major label has changed things. They explain that the best result has come from the exposure that this allows. Still making the same music, the band has found that they’ve received more traction from the new fans. The upcoming international tour dates have also been attributed to this.

Performing at Fat As Butter, the boys also unveil plans for a new record / LP through Modular.
