Exclusive Premiere: PJ Bond, ‘Everglades’
After giving up his apartment and almost all of his possessions, PJ Bond set his mind to accomplish one seemingly simple goal: Play music. For the better part of a decade, he's done just that, touring all over and bringing his beautiful brand of indie rock to audiences across the globe.
On May 4, Bond will release his sophomore effort, Where Were You?, via Black Numbers. Today (April 13), Diffuser is beyond excited to partner with the inspiring singer-songwriter to debut a new track from the upcoming disc -- you can stream “Everglades” in the audio player below.
"It is never fun to see people you care about feel stuck in bad situations," Bond tells us about the underlying theme of "Everglades." "Upon moving to a new city, I met a woman with whom I connected quickly ... and soon learned things that made me terribly uncomfortable. The speed of our emotional intimacy only amplified the confusion and discomfort surrounding us. I am happy to say things are better now."
With a Wilco-tinged, indie-folk foundation, "Everglades" has quickly become one of our favorite new tracks, and we can't wait to hear what's in store with the rest of the LP.
Where Were You? was recorded in Brooklyn with New Jersey's Communipaw as Bond’s backing band. Black Numbers will release four variations of the album on vinyl: Dirty yellow, maroon, navy and a limited test pressing. You can pre-order your copy of Where Were You? here.
While Bond doesn't have any shows on his schedule yet, we get the feeling he'll be hitting the road soon in support of the new record; stay up-to-date with everything happening in his world at this location.
