NEW MUSIC: Matt Pond PA ‘Force of Nature’


Matt Pond PA has shared their new video for “Force of Nature”, from the recently released album Winter Lives. Formed by the prolific songwriter Matt Pond, Matt Pond PA will soon tour the West coast in support of their new album.

With a shifting cast of band members through the years, eleven full-length albums and countless EPs and singles to his name, Matt Pond eludes characterization in a way that is both unpresuming and larger than life. It’s an evolution that just makes sense, because this journey is what he was made for.
By now, fans of the band are not unfamiliar with the enduring love affair Pond’s lyrics and arrangements have with his shift-shaping environment: an embodiment of the season, the beauty in a prosaic exchange, the weight of expectation and hope, a moment that says a kiss is not a promise. But it can be something close to the truth. And in Winter Lives, he keeps pulling us down this path.
With longtime collaborator Chris Hansen on guitar and at the production helm, core band member Shawn Alpay’s cello and string arrangements, and contributions by a notable assemblage of singers and musicians including The Mynabirds’ Laura Burhenn and Moving Panoramas’ frontwoman (and former mpPA guitarist) Leslie Sisson, Pond is building on a storyline whose conclusion, while unknown, is undeniably his own.
