“Matt Pond PA will be returning with a new full length album, Winter Lives, November 11. For the album, he sought inspiration in his past: specifically, his childhood home in New Hampshire when it is buried in ice and snow. Pond distills nostalgia, change, growing up, and staying the same into an album full of moving songs bolstered by strings and vocals from The Mynabirds‘ Laura Burhenn and Moving Panoramas’ frontwoman (and former MPPA guitarist) Leslie Sisson. On “Whoa (Thirteen and Sledding with Kerry in Northern New Hampshire),” which ELLE.com is premiering today, Pond captures the exuberant thrill of looking back, as well as the bittersweet tang of childhood memories. While Pond has made a deeply personal album, the results are strangely, surprisingly universal.” — via Elle
