Matt Pond has sort of become a part of the old guard in indie rock with his numerous albums and EPs over the last decade. Pond is so prolific it has almost been impossible to keep up with and track of his latest happenings. Earlier this year, he released his tenth studio album The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand. It was another solid collection of songs that proved he and his band are some of the most consistent and reliable in the game. One of the standout tracks from the release is the song “Hole In My Heart.” It is a beautiful composed pop rock song whose emotive lyrics shine with Pond’s signature sensitive vocals. To commemorate it as as his latest single, the band has put together a free EP featuring the original and acoustinc version of “Hole In My Heart” along with a cover of Stevie Nicks’ “Wild Heart” from her 1983 solo record The Wild Heart. You can stream the EP below and download it here.

    Really digging this video for Matt Pond. If you’re looking for some similar music then you should give Jeremy Messersmith a listen!
