The Pondhawks: The Top Of The Indie Music World by Eileen Shapiro

Often recited as being reminiscent of The Beatles, the Chicago based duo, The Pondhawks are quickly rising as one of the biggest Indie factions in the world. Their vocals and harmonies continue to bend genres and delight fans. Their newest song, “Afraid of Love” continues to create a buzz and fans are anxiously awaiting to see what’s next.

I spoke to Jorie and Mario regarding a psychedelic, fluorescent 50 year anniversary festival celebrating Woodstock as well as exactly what they were up to….Mario is a jokester while Jorie just seems to entertain his comedy. Together they make an incredible sound that touches the hearts of fans and listeners..

So what have you guys been up to since we last spoke?

Mario: Just making it happen. We did a radio show this morning. It was called CRIS, and it was interesting because they were blind.

Jorie: They are in Chicago and it’s with Lighthouse for the Blind. They are really into PondHawks music. We had to bring all of our albums in, they wanted to be able to hear all of our music.

Mario: Spectacular

What did you talk about?

Jorie: Basically, what we went over with you, the beginnings of the band, and about our music, and songs that they talked about, were they hard to do or easy….

Mario: Our favorite amphibians and reptiles….the usual, you know…

You just came off doing a festival of some sort?

Jorie: We did the Woodstock tour. That was actually pretty good. Everyone was dressed up like hippies…..

Mario: They told me to come dressed the way I always do…the thing is Eileen, I pick a decade and I stick to it.

Well you picked a pretty cool decade.

Jorie: Oh yeah he did.
