To recommend a band or artist to someone with similar tastes in music is both more fun but in some ways more challenging than advising a person with radically different tastes, because while it’s much more likely that they will enjoy whatever you do suggest, chances are they have already heard it, as well.
And so when thinking of how to answer this topic, I have been trying to think of an awesome band under (or vaguely under) the rock genre, who haven’t been heard by many of my readers. Luckily, being an Australian blogger with a fair majority of my readers from elsewhere in the world, that gives me quite a lot of options, and despite the protests of a small number of fellow Aussies, I personally think we have a pretty awesome rock music scene over here.
The band I am going to recommend is an Aussie band from Perth known as Pond. A psychedelic rock band, they feature an ever changing line-up with several core members who remain, including sharing three members with the band Tame Impala, another psychedelic rock band. This year they released their album Beard, Wives, Denim to critical acclaim, and have taken the touring for the album beyond our local shores to the United States, which is exciting for any musical act from this little island down in this corner of the world.
For a taste of this awesome band, check out the song below, entitled Fantastic Explosion of Time:
