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. Notable performances include a recent concert on a moving plane for Southwest Airlines, and more recently at Red Rocks Amphitheater opening for The Fray.
The band draws a wealth of inspiration from their home state, though Billboard says their "warm, retro-acoustic sound feels more like California than Georgia.“ A fitting description of a band that’s been likened to Jackson Browne and Dawes.
”We’re an Americana band in that our songs are reflections of our surroundings and experiences,” says lead guitarist, Charlie Mills.
They’re second album, A Picture of Your Family, will be out March 23 on local Atlanta label Bear Kids Recordings.
“It’s an exploration of human perseverance in the face of such obstacles as extreme pressure, anxiety and depression,” singer Gus Fernandez explains, keeping in theme with 2016’s “Harder Than A Rick Ankiel,” which was inspired by the hard-luck story of a pitcher-turned-batter for The Atlanta Braves.
Substream Magazine said about the upcoming 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.”
The 11 songs on the forthcoming album showcase a tightly knit group of friends and musicians who have steadily evolved since their 2014 debut, Fresh Start. You can now preview the title track below!
