With a cut-up energy and explosive sound that blends genres like nu-metal, new wave, electroclash and post-punk, Dead Pony mischievously unleash Ignore This as a statement of intent. With this album they believe their music can no longer be ignored.

Hints of The Prodigy, or fellow Scottish success story CHVRCHES, jump out as you listen to tracks like the EDM embracing MK Nothing, Rainbow with its message of self-love, the apocalyptic dread of MANA or the romantic infusion on About Love. The band has fought hard for their signature sound, and over sixteen tracks the colliding styles just about fuse together. If you were to try and pigeonhole or categorise Ignore This you might call it electro-grunge revival, post-synthpunk, digital riot rock.
