New Entry: Pondarosa Release New Single "As You Think"

Manchester/Liverpool-based alt-pop/synth quartet Pondarosa have released their catchy new single "As You Think".

Teaming up with Matt Heap of Suff Studio for a third time, 2020 sees the band look to influences like New Order, to focus on a groovier, synth-heavy sound which emphasises their captivating and uplifting energy.

Speaking about re-writing and recording ‘As You Think’, the band’s Adam Ghidouche explained: “We worked with Matt Heap for the third time, which made things very relaxed and easy from the start. Matt is comfortable with electronic music as well as guitar-based stuff, so he was able to help us capture a great blend of guitars and synths to create a more disco-infused sound.”

The song is out now, grab it here and take a listen below.
