Krill Fresh Pond

Boston rockers Krill release new single “Fresh Pond”

Feel good pop punk sadness.

- Jan 31, 2014

Krill keeps it local. The Boston band's new record Steve Hears Pile In Malden and Bursts Into Tears “ a failed concept album about two kids living on the outskirts of Boston who realize they are characters in a Pile song” (Pile being the revered Beantown rockers who have a new single out soon. But on “Fresh Pond,” the trapping of borders, scenes, and an album's self-contained mythology is tied to the universality of alienation with the first pathetically whinnied plea: “Do you want to go see a movie?”

Jonah Furman's voice is a journey of frustration, navigating its pitches and bows like a nerd explaining quantum physics to the jock standing on his neck. From pop punk rager to a dusty, supremely affecting desert of meandering guitars, the song's emotion is played to innovative ends. The need to feel like a human being with yourself and others can be opposed, and “Fresh Pond” is the sound of being lashed between these two colts and waiting for the inevitable.

Krill's Steve Hears Pile In Malden and Bursts Into Tears is out February 18th on Exploding In Sound Records; pre-order it here.
