10 seconds into the opening track, “Submarine” on Pony Trash‘s self titled EP, I was hooked. Slow strummed, almost twangy guitars, and dreamy vocals, this song became my favorite out of the five on this EP. It’s the kind of song that you never want to end. Things pick up a bit in the next track, “Down to the River”, then even out for the rest of the album, which has a shoegaze/dreampop influence throughout.
Based in Minneapolis, Pony Trash is made up of members from The Chambermaids, Polica (who also blew me away during a Lollapalooza after party), Vampire Hands and Gospel Gossip. I could easily leave this whole album on repeat and not get sick of it. Pony Trash is definitely one of my favorite albums of the year and I’m hoping a tour comes soon!
