#7 The Ponys – Another Wound

With a feather lifted from Roddy Woomble’s rapidly disintegrating peak cap (cf ‘When I Argue I See Shapes’) ‘Another Wound’ leaves the blocks in record-breaking fashion. The Ponys may be relative newcomers but they are about to have an almighty impact. Their anglophile tendencies are obvious, yet they mask what they’ve borrowed behind romper-stomper ditties. This a 3 minute pop sensation, shimmering sounds are fashioned from the likeliest of sources and a centre as ebullient as a Wimbledon starlet sees Jered Gummere swing from his own ripened tonsils. Their sophomore effort ‘Celebration Castle’ is awash with similar sonic belters that are primed to replace any other fixes you may have grown accustomed to. While we’ve always had horses for courses, the time may have arrived to try some Ponys for choruses. KD
