When artists get together to write music based on imaginary films, you know you're getting real art-rock. Pony Girl excel at painting soundscapes in which you can be lost. Anchored by guy-girl pop harmonics, songs flow seamlessly from calm to chaos with inspiring lifts, blending guitars, woodwinds and samples together like colours.
Cascading guitars, pulsing beats, and electronic hums colour these stories with extraordinary kaleidoscopic twists and turns. Chords punctuate thoughts. Silences make regret linger. Strings swell with emotion. Foreign Life is a soundtrack to our common memory so vivid, so raw, so urgent that to listen is to relive.
The Ottawa collective have been lauded for their “evocative soundscapes”(CBC Radio), “ability to push the boundaries that define ‘pop-rock’”(Mixtape Magazine), and “musical depth quite astonishing to experience”(Exclaim!) since the release of their debut album, SHOW ME YOUR FEARS, in 2013. Audiences have been mesmerized by their sets at festivals including Ottawa Bluesfest, CityFolk, Ottawa Jazz Festival, Arboretum, and on several tours of Eastern Canada. Pony Girl will release FOREIGN LIFE through So Sorry Records, an imprint of Pop Drone, on November 7, 2015.
