Set to be released on 19th October by Entelodon Records, the husband-and-wife duo of just bass and guitar formed during the pandemic and while the wildfires also raged through their Californian landscape. So what else was there to do while in lockdown except pick up their instruments and create a calmer, more subdued world as the life they once knew turned to ash around them. As the saying goes, every cloud has a silver lining, and as a result of their jams, In The Ponds was born.

Now today, as a teaser of what’s to come, we can bring you the first single off their debut EP with the dream like track Lonesome George

More On In The Ponds & ‘Polar Night’ EP

In The Ponds is what happens when a poet and a filmmaker get married and start an instrumental rock band during pandemic lockdowns and California wildfires. It’s when they spend their honeymoon in quarantine, staring at soot-filled skies wondering how to capture feelings of isolation, dread, and love without using words. The result is three EPs that pay homage to classic rock roots while experimenting with non-traditional song structures for a sound that’s both familiar and otherworldly.

This husband-and-wife duo believes that rock should sound like a smoker’s cough and taste like shoplifted bourbon. Their guitars move between patient, gravely rhythms and sharp, icy leads while their bass lines lay solid foundations that get nice and punchy when they need to. Atmospheric washes hint at the places where the couple feels most at home, like the Grand Canyon and the Mariana Trench.

In the Ponds capture feelings of isolation, dread, and love without using any words at all. It’s living in San Jose, CA with a black cat who sleeps inside speaker cabinets and leaps from impossible heights.

Polar Night and the EPs to follow – Fever Canyon and Last Stop Ranch – were recorded by guitarist David Perez and mixed by Art Bertik.
