Rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the North East’s finest garage rock bands, Pit Pony are back with their latest exceptional offering, Sulk. Masters of complimenting Jackie Purver’s defiant yet melodic vocals with their vigorous guitar textures, Sulk is the Newcastle-based quintet’s most audacious single yet. 

Available digitally across all platforms from 12th June, the track’s “I wanna go out tonight” refrain will undoubtedly resonate with many of us in lockdown. Yet according to the band Sulk was penned pre-lockdown: “It was actually written before it started. Luckily we’d recorded it and two other tracks in Blank Studios the week before lockdown was enforced. I suppose it has a lockdown nod in the sense that we’ve all realised how much we miss one another and have been reaching out to friends and family,” the band acknowledge.

Brilliant and intense, Sulk ultimately deals with love/hate relationships and being stubborn: “It’s a bit like a ‘between the devil and the deep blue sea’ relationship, where you want to be independent but underneath you realise you need other people.”
