Ottawa-Hull indie-rock act Pony Girl delivers lo-fi jangle-pop track “Enny One Wil Love You,” the title track from their forthcoming full-length, alongside vibrant, psychedelic visuals. A groovy number that slots beautifully between shimmering indie-pop and modern electronics, the track is a hypnotic exploration of self-sabotage, doubt and indifference.
Anchored by wispy voice lines from Pascal Huot and Yolande Laroche, the track pushes the confines of pop-rock with a swirling psych-tinged instrumentation, rooted in a message about self-doubt and disappointment.
With lyrics drawn from a child’s drawing the band glimpsed while on tour, “Enny One Wil Love You,” embodies the sweet poison of backhanded compliments. As the band explains, “'Anyone will LOVE you' for their charisma, yet 'ANYONE will love you' despite their bullshit.”
The crooning vocals over pop-rock sensibilities is gentle and perfectly offset by the bright splash of colors and abstract illustrations brought to life in the accompanying music video.
Right from their first album Show Me Your Fears, in 2013, Pony Girl have established a vibrant multi-genre sound led by messages that are as vulnerable as they are alluring – and with this latest outing they continue along the same artistic path with finesse.
