After releasing their standout single ‘Sideways’ and completing an incredible twenty-three date East Coast tour, Sydney-based indie-rock revelers, Bad Pony, have swiftly returned with a new track ‘Bottles’ and accompanying tour dates.
With every new release, the envelope is pushed further and ‘Bottles’ is no exception. The eclectic mix of erratic and explosive drum fills, fuzzed out and glimmering synths, Foals inspired guitar licks and the endearing vocals of enigmatic front man, Jarred Young all combine to deliver on a fresh and exciting take on modern day indie-pop.
Young describes the motivation behind writing the song –
“Bottles is about a toxic, alcoholic relationship. It's a lyrically co-written effort that explores frustration, infatuation, intoxication and despair.”
Their previous single and video for ‘Sideways’ was widely embraced by the likes of triple j, MTV, community radio, major local press and worldwide blogs. The quintet also set out on a twenty-three date tour that included shows in TAS, NSW, QLD, VIC and ACT, and took part in their first international showcase event performing at Music Matters, Singapore.
Keeping in line with their hard work ethic approach to touring, the band will play seven shows across the East Coast, which will include dates in Manly, Wollongong, Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Hobart and Melbourne.
An accompanying music video for ‘Bottles’ will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
