About the Song

The haunted house on the edge of town. The abandoned theme park off the interstate. Something pulls us toward forbidden spaces. When you finally get up the nerve to jump the fence, climb the porch steps, and slip inside, a special soundtrack plays in your head. For In the Ponds, it’s the sound of broken amplifiers screaming at the bottom of a well–an effect they tried to capture for “The Lost City.”

About the Video

Old videotape is kinda magic. Maybe it’s spelunking through dusty archives or the thrill of breathing new life into images long discarded. Whatever it is, In the Ponds bassist, Jennifer Gigantino, is at it again–assembling found footage into an underworldly collage. In “The Lost City,” she leads us on a journey to meet the souls who went down with the galleons and the monks chiming the hours in subterranean cathedrals.

About the EP

On the heels of their debut EP Polar Night, San Jose-based instrumental post-rock duo IN THE PONDS will release their second EP, Fever Canyon this coming March—and a third EP in the months to follow.

IN THE PONDS is a poet and a filmmaker getting married and starting an instrumental rock band during pandemic lockdowns and California wildfires. It’s a honeymoon spent in quarantine, staring at soot-filled skies wondering how to capture feelings of isolation, dread, and love without using words. Their music pays homage to classic rock while experimenting with atmospheric textures for a sound that’s both familiar and otherworldly.


Fever Canyon puts heavy blues and ambient vibes against a Western backdrop. For the band, the tracks evoke their time on long-ass road trips through the American Southwest in an ailing 1990 BMW 325i. Some music sounds best over engine noise on oily nights when you swear there’s a flying saucer on your tail. This EP is one of those.

Fever Canyon was recorded by guitarist David Perez and mixed by Art Bertik. The front cover artwork and the music video for “The Lost City” were both created by bassist Jennifer Gigantino.
