The Genesis of “(I’m) Stung”: From Lawn to Lyric

Nicholas Allbrook, Pond’s charismatic frontman, reveals the serendipitous creation of “(I’m) Stung”, born from a moment of personal reflection and musical spontaneity.

“I wrote most of this while mowing someone’s lawn. I went home and put my fingers on the piano and pretty much played the base of it first go. This is a very rare and special treat and buoyed me for weeks. It’s funny because I had a mad crush on someone, and they dropped me like a sack of shit and this song just flew down and clocked me right in the forehead and I felt totally better. Then Gin and Gum added all their magic – cool sounds, passing chords. It’s about being totally pathetically stung by someone and just having to be cool with it being unrequited. Being resilient, accepting that you are a bit of a goose, but life goes on.”
