“It’s admirable that everything the band puts out there is fully DIY – be it the songwriting, production, or music videos that really propel the image of the band forward, and naturally the band conveys a true authenticity in their performances. We highly recommend keeping track of this Sydney band, they’ll be all over the world very soon!” – Concentus (UK)
Bad Pony rounded off 2016 with a showcase at Singapore’s Music Matters and flew into 2017 with a showcase at Canadian Music Week and a hugely successful national tour.
The band finished off 2017 with a sold-out shows in Sydney and Melbourne, the announcement of being part of the Australian line-up at the world’s biggest music conference, SXSW 2018 in Austin, Texas and taking out the win for the Australian Music Week Award.
After inking a publishing deal with Perfect Pitch Publishing as well as a booking deal with 123 Agency in 2016, the band have their hugely anticipated sophomore EP ‘Deficiency’ in the cooker. Their single of the same name received a rave review from its Rolling Stone Australia premiere and a successful national run of shows that saw them play to packed-out rooms across Australia.
With preparations for SXSW underway comes the announcement of Bad Pony’s new single ‘Knife’. Alongside Australian PR heavyweights Beehive PR and US PR and marketing superstars Marauder Group working their magic on the release, ‘Knife’ was mixed by Adrian Breakspear (ARIA Producer of the Year, ARIA Engineer of the Year nominee – Gang Of Youths ‘Go Farther In Lightness’ + GRAMMY Album of the Year nominee – Pharrell’s ‘G I R L’) and mastered by Ben Feggans at 301 (Cut Copy, Dustin Tebbutt, Miami Horror, RÜFÜS, Dappled Cities). It’s safe to say this is set to be the band’s strongest release yet.
AT SXSW 2018 WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
