Kathryn Williams presents...The Pond
It’s a bold and exciting move, a psychotropic mix that augments vintage beats, 60’s pop, tape loops, Eastern notes - even a rapper. Songs like ‘Circle Round A Tree’ and ‘Art Of Doing Nothing’ carry a sunny, laid back disposition but others leave a surprising impression of darkness. Comparisons may be drawn with down-tempo artists like Lemon Jelly, Mint Royale and Bent, but The Pond’s strong emphasis is on songs and voices.
Watch Marry Waterson’s video for the single ‘Circle Round A tree’ on their website.
The eponymous debut album is released this Monday on One Little Indian.
