Pony League has a knack for distilling real life moments into shimmering compositions stacked with a lush blend of piano and guitars, a skill they’ve put on display across the country.
Their second album, A Picture of Your Family, out now on Atlanta label Bear Kids Recordings, is “an exploration of human perseverance in the face of such obstacles as extreme pressure, anxiety and depression,” singer Gus Fernandez explains, which keeps in theme with 2016’s “Harder Than A Rick Ankiel,” inspired by the hard-luck story of a pitcher-turned-batter for The Atlanta Braves.
Substream Magazine said about the album’s title track, “It’s one of those songs you can’t stop listening to because you love the fact that you feel something when you’re listening to it. You’re taken out of your own head, the negativity of real life slips away, and in a true Walking In Memphis kind of way– you can’t help but feel a little somber but somehow full of joy.”
All Things Go recommends Pony League for fans of The Avett Brothers and Dawes.
