Kathryn Williams & The Pond have released a video for their forthcoming single ‘The River’ which is out on October 15th. The video is expertly directed and performed by puppet maker, puppeteer and artist Tony Sinnett (www.tonysinnett.co.uk).
Widely noted as the album’s standout track, ‘The River’ is the second single to be taken from The Pond’s eponymous debut. The euphoric sparkling pulse is derived from a Pakistani bapang, the “perfect instrument to transport you to the mountains” according to the band.
The Pond is Kathryn Williams - ‘Without doubt one of the most authentic folk voices in the country’ (Q) – and fellow musicians, Simon Edwards and Ginny Clee. Together they have created an album that throws together vintage beats, 60’s pop, tape loops and Eastern notes into the melting pot with Adrian Utley’s mix lending the ultra-vivid melodies a positively Bristolian depth and louché sophistication.
The band will tour the UK in October. However, unfortunately some of the dates are being cancelled or rescheduled due to circumstances beyond the bands control.
