mpmatt pond PA has gone through an inception or two, and have never shied away from trying new sounds and reinventing themselves both in the physical and metaphorical sense.  After several line up changes, a location change from PA to Brooklyn and and a side project here and there, one thing remains the same – visceral songwriting that reaches out and grabs you from the inside out, grabbing your heart and giving it a little shake, not unlike full on heartbreak and falling in love at the same time.

Never one to mask emotions matt pond PA (Matt pond on vocals and guitar, Dan Crowell on drums, Steve Jewett on guitar, Chris Hansen on guitar and keyboards and Matthew Daniel Sisken on bass) lay it all out on the line with their latest release Last Light.  With help from the likes of Neko Case who makes a cameo appearance, Last Light invites you onto the matt pond PA rollercoaster of longing, loving, and everything in between.  While this album is a bit richer and edgier than albums past, it doesn’t lose any of it’s emotional intensity.

The band tours incessantly and can currently be found making their way from the west coast to the east coast of the US before heading off to Japan, catch them if you can!
