Poney Poney Go TURBO!
When the French music scene is dominated by electronic artists -- at least in the eyes of us Americans -- it's always refreshing to hear a group that doesn't conform to the standard!
Poney Poney is one such group. The Parisian trio is one such group. A blend of pretty rough and gritty garage rock and the smoother, hookier tunes of say, the Strokes. I dig it. The guys just released a new track, "Turbo," which is actually still officially a demo, but maybe that's best. It thrashed right on through, loud and brash. It's great. Can't wait to see these guys make the jump to LP format, capitalize off all that press they've been getting!
