Sydney’s Bad Pony have been doing the round for a few years now, but now as we get closer and closer to the new year, the group have decided to gift fans with a brand new single, the exhilarating ‘Half Blood’.
Bad Pony have had a pretty stellar year so far, with showcases at Canadian Music Week, and shows in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and New York City. Now with a brand new single behind them, the group are all set to head in 2018 with a bang, with Bad Pony already set to represent Australia at South By Southwest next year.
Bad Pony’s new single, ‘Half Blood’, is another banger from the group. Filled with soulful vocals, tasty riffs, pounding drums, and a brilliant chorus that will definitely see the track quickly become a fan favourite at upcoming shows.
The track’s accompanying video manages to perfectly capture the sort of artists that Bad Pony are. Showing the group performing the track live, the video provides a snapshot of the ferocity, energy, and dedication that every single member of the band puts into their craft.
“The way we play live is pretty unique and we have a shitload of fun doing it,” said Jarred Young, the band’s vocalist and drummer. “We wanted to make sure that came across with ‘Half Blood’.”
To add to the news of the brilliant single and video, the group have also just been named as recipients of the Australian Music Week’s 301 Music Prize. This of course means big things for Bad Pony, who are set to record a brand new single at Studios 301 as part of the prize.
“We’re really, really stoked,” said Jarred excitedly. “As a band that usually self-produces it will be a great experience to get into 301 with a producer for our next single too.”
Bad Pony are set to head out on an east coast tour soon, giving fans a chance to devour their new single. Kicking things off at the Australian Music Week festivities next week, the band will hit up Tasmania, Victoria, and revisit New South Wales before the tour wraps up.
With the band’s reputation for delivering an absolutely stunning live show, this is going to be one you won’t want to miss.
