Australian psych-rockers POND are releasing a new album, The Weather, on May 5 via Marathon Artists. The album is produced by Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker. Previously the band shared "Sweep Me Off My Feet," as well as a video for the song, a video for album opener "30000 Megatons," and the audio for title track "The Weather," as well as a video for "The Weather." Now the band have shared another song from the album, "Paint Me Silver," via its weird video that features computer-generated dancing aliens, among other things. Alejandro Miguel Justino Crawford directed the video. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

POND frontman Nick Allbrook used to play bass in Tame Impala and the two bands have often shared members, including Parker. A press release previously said of The Weather: "Where 2015's Man, It Feels Like Space Again was a considered yet raw take on their garage-inflected psyche, The Weather is an ambitious, Technicolor odyssey which feels like POND's coming of age."

Allbrook had this to say in a previous press release: "It's a concept album, not completely about Perth, but focusing on all the weird contradictory things that make up a lot of colonial cities around the world. Laying out all the dark things underneath the shimmering exterior of cranes, development, money and white privilege. It's not our place, but it is our place. British, but Australian, but not REAL Australian. On the edge of the world with a hell of a lot of fucked things defining our little city, still we try and live a wholesome respectful life, while being inherently disrespectful. At the end of all this confusion in our weird little white antipodean world, there's the beach, purity and nature that brings us all together."
