Australian Psych-poppers Pond Return with "Xanman" (stream)

Perth's Pond specialize in a very British take on pysch pop with a sound that would have felt very much a piece with the Britpop bands of the '90s.

On "Xanman", Pond goes for crunchy Oasis rhythm and chords blended with hard rock beats, swirling textures and fuzzy vocals. It's a pretty great single and is, indeed, the first single from the band's upcoming fourth album, Hobo Rocket, releasing 5/6 August via Modular.
