Reliably informed

Filled with raw, punk-fuelled energy, Pit Pony‘s debut single Opportunity Went sets out a stall for a new band looking to show themselves to be inventive noise makers who have a bit of feistiness and intelligence in what they do to make a track that’s impressive and full of biting attitude.

The quintet are brimming with fuzzy, garage rock swagger (not surprising for a band drawing on members of Cheap Lunch, Retriever, Slurs and Black Lung Club) and are set to play at next month’s Evolution Emerging. As starting points go, Opportunity Went has a certain PJ Harvey vibe evident, but this is a band who could well pull on eclectic influences and put out releases of real quality. Sharp, smart lyrics are as cutting as the dirty guitars they stride over and musically it’s the mix of melodic and abrasive that mean Pit Pony are well worth your attention.

Pit Pony release Opportunity Went on Friday 25th May.
