"The tarted up little sister the Slits never had, and the naughty girlfriend the Tom Tom Club always wanted." -XLR8R
"A beat that hits the bloodstream like a sugar rush." 8.2 rating -Pitchfork
"It feels like we've been waiting an eternity for this album, but you know what they say about "good things" and, yes, Fantastic Playroom is worth the wait. New Young Pony Club have the inspired energy of an early '80s British New Wave band, and they seem to do it all so effortlessly. This is a band to watch." -KCRW DJ Jason Bentley (Metropolis)
New Young Pony Club, have already worked the underground up into a lather with dance floor destroyers like The Bomb and Ice Cream – full of their signature provocative lyrics and knee jerking production. The 5 piece are now set to bring the world alight with debut album Fantastic Playroom.
After a chance meeting between lead singer Tahita and production guru Andy in 2005 a master plan was put into action to establish something distinctly new and utterly potent. Enter – New Young Pony Club – 2 boys and 3 girls (Tahita Bulmer, Andy Spence, Sarah Jones, Igor Volk, Lou Hayter), the kind of band that has the boys going wild and girls wishing they were dancing alongside on stage.
Two years later, a debut single under their belt and a UK tour planned for the summer – New Young Pony Club, are ready to drop the highly anticipated and salivated over debut album.
Grey has all the hallmarks of a great track with its immediate, entirely loveable and radio friendly chorus. The Get Go and F.A.N provide the kind of tight and bass-heavy future disco noise currently setting hairs on end up and down the country.
Crammed full of the types of songs that keep you dancing ‘til the sun comes out to play – Fantastic Playroom is bound to be the soundtrack to a hot and sweaty summer – accompanied by, of course, lots of Ice Cream.
MORE RAVES FROM THE PRESS:
"New Young Pony Club may well have caught your attention in recent months. What with the infuriatingly catchy wares of The Bomb, and the wonderful innuendo of Ice Cream, being touted by television in the form of music channels and even adverts, it’s been hard to ignore them, that’s without mentioning what good looking people they are." -Play Music
"Just when you thought the dance revival might be over, New Young Pony Club are here to remind us, 'There’s nothing like a volcano-hot dance beat matched to a glacier cool vocal.'" -Daily News.
“Combining angular guitar-driven rock with disco-pop gloss, New Young Pony Club drives even the most sedentary to the dance floor.” -Spin.com
"A fantastic collision of synths, cowbells, handclaps and filthy lyrics – what more do you need?" -NME
"Glorious an amazing band" -The Sunday Times Culture
"A seductive slab of New Order-meets-ESG disco punk" -Time Out (London)
