What do you get when you cross twee with surf rock? A Seapony. This is no joke. Seapony are three-piece Seattle outfit, Jen, Danny, & Ian, that have a shimmering Phil Spectar wall-of-sound, jangly guitar pop soaked in surf rock and delicately twee female vocals.
Their debut and eponymous EP appeared earlier this year – all reverbed and nostalgic, sunny songs with cheerless lyrics.
The follow up 7″ (as featured on last week’s mixtape) will be released on November 15th on Double Denim (home of Blackbird Blackbird among others). Sure it’s a little zeitgeisty in the year of Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls and The Drums but there’s a coy charm to Seapony, they have a bijou twist.
