The New Young Pony Club
Last night I had the pleasure of seeing The New Young Pony Club play their first show in LA. I have to say that they are by far the best band playing the now sound of dance punk funk whatever... Tahita ,the lead singer ,was only giving 120% and I wonder what would have happened if she could have given more? I don't care much for rock bands going disco but NYPC are the exception to the rule. The bass lines were text book,the drums were 4/4 ,guitar was all angular,but for some reason it didn't sound tired or played out like a lot of other bands from a year or 2 ago. Tahita has a certain charisma that gets your attention and keeps it. Their hit single Ice Cream has been getting buzz and they are on Modular records so that is good thing. If you have the chance check out this band. They are sure to be the sound of 2000's era.
