Kathryn Williams launches new project ‘The Pond’

02 Mar 2012

The Pond is a ‘democratic mud pit’ in which Kathryn Williams - ‘Without doubt one of the most authentic folk voices in the country’ (Q) - has teamed up with fellow musicians, Simon Edwards and Ginny Clee for an album project – more Gorillaz than Guthrie - that will take many by surprise. Their self-titled debut is released by One Little Indian on 28th May, for now you can catch a sneak preview of new song ‘The River’.

The Pond is an explosion of ideas augmenting vintage beats, 60’s pop, Eastern flavoured loops - and even a rapper. The music developed – alongside friendships - over a two year period of on/ off recording at Simon & Ginny’s home studio in North London and by exchanging files over email with Newcastle-based Kathryn. Pooling their talents into The Pond’s eponymous debut, the album’s 11 tunes are infused with the warmth and playfulness of its makers – with Adrian Utley’s mix leavening the ultra-vivid melodies with depth and a surprisingly louché sophistication.

A quick heads up on Kathryn’s co-conspirators. Simon – a much in demand session player - cut his teeth in Fairground Attraction scoring a worldwide hit with Perfect in 1988, the song winning the Best Single award at the following year’s BRITS (the parent album, The First of a Million Kisses also picking up the Best Album gong). Ginny meanwhile started out in her pop life as one half of The Dear Janes, subsequently contributing vocals to records by everyone from Robert Plant to Robyn Hitchcock.

The band are also excited to announce live dates for late May and early June.
