Pond often shares its members with fellow Australian psychedelic rock band Tame Impala. Jay Watson is a full member of both acts, while Pond band leader Nick Allbrook contributed to both bands from 2009 until 2013.

Lyrics

Sweep Me Off My Feet
Hey, you, I’m not bold or cool or masculine,
Maybe you’re just waiting for the perfect Latin lover to walk in,
I’m not him.
Between my penis and my chin is Camembert and shame,
I used to be elegantly thin, I’m sorry babe, we both missed that train,
Oh, no, if I follow you all your girlfriends will know,
then i’ll wind up with the other fools waiting,
wasting his time following you ‘round,
another lonely guy with longing in his eye,
but you said your man was bringing you down.

Someone sweep me off my feet,
i am not an angel, i’m barely a man,
I’m lonely but I’m here,
Baby, understand,
Someone sweep me off my feet.
