I’m not one for Pysch Rock–the meandering instrumentals and abstract lyrics don’t do too much for me. But Pond makes it fun. In fact, Pond makes everything fun. Their set at Boston Calling happened early in the day on Sunday–a gray, rainy and cold day. The crowd wasn’t in an affable mood, but it only took the Australian natives five minutes to win the masses over. Their set quickly became one of the most talked about at the three day festival. They play at the Royale on Friday, for what is sure to be an amazing way to kick off your weekend.
I was able to catch up with Joey and Jay from Pond once they got off the Boston Calling Stage, where we talked Basketball, morphing into Beyonce and about their most recent album The Weather.
