New Young Pony Club

The Optimist

    Forget everything you thought you knew about New Young Pony Club because on their second album it's all changed. If 2007's critically acclaimed, Mercury Music Prize nominated "Fantastic Playroom" was the culmination of the hybrid disco sound they pioneered, "The Optimist" heralds the beginning of a brave new future for the band. Self-produced and more importantly self-funded and self-released, "The Optimist" is the sound of a band taking full control of their present and future, circumnavigating their own way. With no four to the floor, no cowbell (!) and no monotone sexy talk, the creative freedom enjoyed by the band has opened up a new 'indie' side, as shown by the psychedelic dub balladry of "Stone" and the atmospheric, cracked beauty of "Architect Of Love", and the singles "Lost A Girl", "Chaos" and soon-to-be-huge "We Want To". It's an assured, deliciously adventurous next step for New Young Pony Club, open your ears and have a listen.

    Philippa says: A current shop stereo favourite!

    Andy says: Still groovy, still dead melodic, but now with a heavier, almost Gothic flavour. There's more depth but no less FUN. It's the perfect blend.

    Get Lucky - Inc MSTRKRFT / WhoMadeWho Remixes

      Originally released on the Noize label after the Ponies had left Tirk and before they joined Modular, "Get Lucky" is another brilliant piece of NYPC pop music. Featuring a typically post-punk inspired backing (choppy guitars, jerky dancefloor rhythms etc) and another strong vocal performance from singer Tahita Bulmer, the song has a real B52s feel to it (albeit at a much slower tempo). On this CD single there are also exclusive reworks by MSTRKRFT and Whomadewho, both rather tasty.

      Ice Cream - Herve / Metal On Metal Remixes

        Live favourite, New Young Pony Club anthem and Intel advert soundtrack "Ice Cream", gets re-released! The track is a sparsely minimal punk funk jerkout that sounds like a distaff version excursion on disco-era Rolling Stones fronted by the Slits' Ari Up and produced by David Byrne and Brian Eno. This CD single also includes and extended version plus video, AND remixes by Herve and Metal On Metal, both more for peak-time club play.
