With members strewn across the country, when Bad Pony comes together it’s a sight and sound to behold. The five piece have eleven national tours under their belt and three international showcases (Singapore’s Music Matters – 2016, Canadian Music Week – 2017, SXSW – 2018), Bad Pony have spent the most part of their career together on the road, not to mention having independently released two EPs and a string of singles with national radio success.
After playing to packed out venues across Austin and Dallas, the highlight of 2018’s SXSW for Bad Pony was easily playing Sounds Australia’s Aussie BBQ at the inaugural Australia House Showcase. Playing before national idols Gang of Youths, Bad Pony’s explosive performance saw them walk away with the award of ‘Best Australian Group’, as voted by The AU Review and hailed by SXSW as “next in line to break out.”
The indie-rock outfit have spent 2019 and 2020 carefully crafting their debut Album – experimenting with both self-producing and enlisting the expertise of JP Fung and Steven Schram. The first two singles from the horror-inspired release both received spins on Triple J and are a tasty morsel of what’s to come.
