Australian psych-rockers Pond, have released the video for their brilliant new single ‘Take Me Avalon I’m Young’. In addition to the new offering, they’ve announced a string of UK shows for next Summer.

Filmed in Hastings on the Sussex coast of England, the grainy new video was directed by Bunny Kinney, and watches frontman and ex Tame Impala bassist Nick Allbrook attempt a multitude of sports. Allbrook admitted that the wholesome offering was “the most fun video I’ve ever been part of”.

He explained: “I spent two days rushing around Hastings running, swimming, shooting, fencing and playing terrible basketball,” he said in a statement. “It was a dream come true. The freezing sunrise yoga was magical in retrospect, even if I was a brat at the time (sorry Bunny). A perfect seaside weekend; I got to play, and Bunny got to create an ode to his favourite sport, the modern pentathlon.”

Additionally, the band’s five-date UK tour will kick off in June next year, after the band have completed their appearances at Barcelona’s iconic Primavera Festival.

‘Take Me Avalon I’m Young’ is just the latest single from Pond’s latest album “9”, Reviewing the band’s ninth offering in October, Bog Far Out said Even among a glut of Australian psych-rockers, Pond had distinction, none of which is sacrificed on the new record. Instead, it’s refined and weaponised, making 9 the band’s most accessible work to date.”
