This Friday Matt Pond PA will release his new EP Songs Of Disquiet with money going towards Save The Music Foundation off of his Bandcamp sales. Where Matt Pond has grown as a songwriter and composer really shows up here, as the track takes turns and twists that highlight his strengths. His new single and accompanying video “The Start” not only bring this to life, but show how well seasoned he is as an artist as well.
The track has these hypnotizing and magical qualities. Beneath the indie rock tones that meet with Pond’s singer songwriter space are these swirls of backing vocals. Mix that with his own tender voice and you’re rewarded with a sound that stays with you while it warms your heart. There’s no flexing here, just Pond doing what he does best. The video of a woman dancing in an almost deserted city feels right in this time where tomorrow isn’t promised and our streets are nearly silent.
