Australian band Pond have unveiled a new video for their track ‘Sitting Up on Our Crane’, taken from their forthcoming album ‘Man, It Feels Like Space Again’.
Directed by Alejandro Miguel Justino Crawford, the animated video features a figure climbing a crane before falling into a psychedelic hole, as well as scenes of two people arguing on a plane.
According to a press release, the song was inspired by real trips to unmanned construction sites, where the band would climb cranes. “We’d sit at the top and I’d always be afraid that we were gonna fall off, kill ourselves,” band member Jay Watson said. “That’s what that song’s about. Kind of an anxiety power ballad.”
Last month, Pond announced details of a headline UK tour set to take place in February. The band, who feature Tame Impala associates Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson and Cam Avery among their ranks, will play gigs in Sheffield, Glasgow, Birmingham, London, Manchester and Bristol.

‘Man, It Feels Like Space Again’ will be released on January 26 via Caroline Records. It is Pond’s sixth album, and their first since 2013’s ‘Hobo Rocket’.
