Yesterday, we featured Guster – a band squarely on the mainstream radar. Today, we’re featuring a local band on the opposite end of the spectrum. PonyHomie has only recently become a name recognized in the Seattle underground scene, but they are one of Seattle’s best up-and-coming dance-inducing bands. With eerie vocal effects, sparkly synth and tousled bass riffs, you won’t be able to keep from moving with the music.
PonyHomie isn’t letting their “new kid on the block” status keep them down, either. After being denied an invite to play a set at SXSW, they teamed up with bands Mason Reed, Backdrifter and Jake Nannery to raise funds to crash the party and trail-blaze their way to the SXSW spotlight. (If you are interested in sponsoring these bands and turning their SXSW aspirations into reality, you can pledge a donation at their Kickstarter page.)
PonyHomie is opening for MK Speed Dial, White China Gold and Secret Shoppers tonight at Neumos. If you can’t make it tonight, they are also headlining their own show at Chop Suey on January 30. We’ve posted our favorite songs from their demo album below for your listening pleasure.
