Pond - Sweep Me Off My Feet

Sweep Me Off My Feet is the first single off Pond’s new album The Weather
Out on Marathon Artists on 5th May. The video direction was done by Matt Sav.

Pond is a psychedelic rock band from Perth, Western Australia, formed in 2008. Featuring a revolving line-up, the band currently consists of Nick Allbrook, Jay Watson, Joe Ryan and Jamie Terry.

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. Current Tame Impala members Kevin Parker, Cam Avery and Julien Barbagallo are all former members of Pond, with Parker continuing to work with the band as its record producer.

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.

Lost Time : no such thing as permanence –
