Earning the indie outfit the well deserved reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the business, and the one to watch; “The country has produced many impressive electronic pop acts in recent years, and Sydney’s Bad Pony look like they may be next in line to break out”. SXSW
Following on from their 2017 release ‘Deficiency’ which reaped rave reviews; “Balancing grit with glam, the in-ya-face pop-electro confidence is built from a dominant — yet relatively sparse — grinding, mechanical rhythm, that bumps up against a more reflective side” Rolling Stone. “Another banger from the group. Filled with soulful vocals, tasty riffs, pounding drums, and a brilliant chorus that will definitely see the track quickly become a fan favourite at upcoming shows” Tone Deaf, the electronic rock outfit have delivered their seemingly inexorable single ‘Knife’.
Recorded in house at the band’s Sydney studio, mixed by Adrian Breakspear (ARIA Producer of the Year winner, ARIA Engineer of the Year nominee – Gang Of Youths ‘Go Farther In Lightness’ + GRAMMY Album of the Year nominee – Pharrell’s ‘G I R L’) and mastered by Ben Feggans at 301 (Cut Copy, Dustin Tebbutt, Miami Horror, RÜFÜS, Dappled Cities) the results of working with the ultimate dream team are evident. “It was great to work on this track – it’s aggressive but with memorable melodies and hooks, and a satisfying challenge to make everything fit into place – hopefully the listener will agree it hits the spot!” – Adrian Breakspear.
‘Knife’ will be released digitally Friday 23rd February 2018
