Bio

Whether it’s heritage, hope or insanity that fuels them, Sydney-based Bad Pony simply do not stop. With eight 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 self-produced EPs with a handful of singles all with national radio success.

After playing to packed out venues across Austin, the highlight of this year’s SXSW for Bad Pony was easily playing Sound’s Australia’s Aussie BBQ at the inaugural Australia House showcase. Playing before national idols such as 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.

The sonically eclectic outfit kicked off 2017 with a showcase at Canadian music week, inked a management deal with Sydney-based agency, ArowAgency and scored a Rolling Stone Australia premiere for their single ‘Deficiency’. If that wasn’t enough excitement, they topped off another huge year of touring in 2018 with a performance at Australian Music Week and winning the Australian Music Week award.

After taking some time off to reflect on a huge year of touring, Bad Pony have spent the best part of last year writing for their debut album and are back with their new single “Villain”. Described as “punchy, yet sinister” by Music Feeds, the single is available now on all streaming outlets.

This careens about like a pinball in a bonus round. Loses a smidge of steam towards the end but maybe I'm just a psychopath who wants to see the world burn.

i'm hearing the theatrics of muse with the heavier side of foals. i'm sweaty just listening to it stationary in an office chair.
