Stream: Pond, “Pond in a Park”

To celebrate the actual, physical release of their new album, Beard, Wives, Denim, Pond gets a little meta with this b-side, "Pond in a Park". It sounds exactly how Pond might sound if they were chilling in a park—even the hard guitars are so blown out with reverb, it's like the aural equivalent of reclining on a plush, grassy swath. It looks like Pond won't actually be playing in any parks on their US spring tour, but they're appropriately kicking it off in that quintessentially American state, Texas for SXSW. Listen to "Pond in a Park" and check out following tour dates, below.
