Melbourne cinematic psych-blues trio Pony Face announce their second album Hypnotised and a East Coast tour.
The mesmerising band have accrued critical acclaim for years before the release of their 2010 debut album Stars Are Bright.
Now they prepare for the release of their second album Hypnotised, produced by Casey Rice (who has previously worked with The Dirty Three, Tortoise and Liz Phair). It’ll be out on August 14.
They’re offering a free download of the first single ‘Silver Tongue’, a brooding glitchy ballad at BandCamp here.
Pony Face will also shoot up and down the East Coast of Australia on tour (with a quick diversion to Adelaide) in September. Tickets are available for the Northcote Social Club show on the venue’s website, and on the door for the other shows.
We were lucky enough to capture the band at the Old Bar recently, where they played ‘Stars Are Bright’ and covers of Charles Jenkins and Bruce Springsteen.
