Pony Girl explores the tension between what we want and what we have on their sophomore album FOREIGN LIFE. Guy-girl pop vocals score the foreign lives we create when we cheat on a partner, lose a friend, force a smile, and further divides separating fantasy from reality. Pascal Huot and Yolande Laroche’s alluring harmony is our paradox as we struggle to close the distance.
Cascading guitars, pulsing beats, and electronic hums colour these stories with extraordinary kaleidoscopic twists and turns. Chords punctuate thoughts. Silences make regret linger. Strings swell with emotion. Foreign Life is a soundtrack to our common memory so vivid, so raw, so urgent that to listen is to relive.
The Ottawa collective have been lauded for their “evocative soundscapes” (CBC Radio), “ability to push the boundaries that define ‘pop-rock’” (Mixtape Magazine), and “musical depth quite astonishing to experience” (Exclaim!) since the release of their debut album, SHOW ME YOUR FEARS, in 2013. Audiences have been mesmerized by their sets at festivals including Ottawa Bluesfest, CityFolk, Ottawa Jazz Festival, Arboretum, and on several tours of Eastern Canada. Pony Girl released FOREIGN LIFE through So Sorry Records on November 7, 2015.
Membres du groupe : Pascal Huot, Julien Dussault, Yolande Laroche, Michel Cousineau, Greggory Clark and Jeff Kingsbury.
