Pond – Giant Tortoise – new video

Here’s an absolute stonker of a track from Australian psych-rockers, Pond. Giant Tortoise is definitely a step forward from last year’s slacker rock-esque, Beards, Wives, Denim album.

The band, who share a bassist with Tame Impala (and have a frequently changing line-up) have beefed up their sound and if this track is anything to go by now sound like the rather lovely missing link between Mercury Rev and Pink Floyd:

Giant Tortoise is taken from Pond‘s forthcoming album, Hobo Rocket (out 2nd August in Australia – 5th in UK – and 6th in the US).
