Local faves give us an upper-tempo ode to a southern Perth suburb, announce deluxe edition of acclaimed album 9
It’s been a good couple of weeks for the Spinning Top crew and music fans alike, first with the Tame Impala news, now today we get some new POND!
Lights of Leeming is a relentless race through post-punk meets new-wave as squelchy synths meet big beats and an addictive warbly bassline underpins it all, with Nicholas Allbrook's vocals sitting perfectly atop the mix. The track and announcement comes ahead of their Australian and European tour (all dates below).
Of the track, Allbrook says “Lights of Leeming is a true story about the crushing boredom of suburbia and the wild and destructive things people do to break the monotony, to see that there's at least something you can do to affect your surroundings - to be seen and validated as a real, existent part of the world - even if it's just breaking something or getting in trouble. It's pretty dumb fun, but dumb fun is important, right?’ Right, indeed.
