Described as a ‘democratic mud pit’, The Pond (Kathryn Williams and fellow musicians, Simon Edwards and Ginny Clee) is a pop project – more Gorillaz than Guthrie - that will take many by surprise. For Kathryn – currently in the middle of a creative purple patch – it’s a bold and exciting move involving a popourri of vintage beats, 60’s pop, tape loops, Eastern notes – and in the case of ‘Bebop’, a rapper, Kirsch. Finally Adrian Utley’s mix gives the bright, ultra-vivid melodies a depth and louché sophistication.
