Singer/songwriter and POND frontman Nick Allbrook takes me backstage before the band’s recent LA show to reveal his long-term infatuation with Outkast’s 2003 classic ‘Love Below’, the complex and endlessly inventive record helped teach Nick it was ok to love pop bangers.
We talk about how the album is structured like a concept record, the wonderfully weird production choices, how Andre 3000 and Outkast evolved from their early Atlanta rap days into the genre blending of 'Love Below’, the Outkast cover Nick did with Tame Impala on triple J, stories about foisting the record on the Tame boys in their old share house, the pop anxiety some psych fans have about the evolution of Pond’s sound and what to expect from the new Pond record.
