Seapony Go With Me

If you're old enough to remember Sarah Records, The Pastels, The Loft and the joy of perpetual jangly pop, then allow me to introduce you to your new favorite band, Seapony. This power trio takes a trip back to the 80's, dresses it up in an anorak, and breaks out its K records collection with so much pride it’s embarrassing. Their album, Go With Me is a fizzy pop treat that's nerdy, awkward, lost at love, and an absolute joy to listen to.

Filled with sweet and sugary sighs, fuzzy guitars, and clever choruses, Go With Me is a fun filled romp through fields of heather in the summer. Utilizing very little technology, three chords, and a minimal is more songwriting style, the band create twelve sugar rushes of pop that are shy, shuffly, and under three minutes long. Seapony have concocted such a love affair with jangly pop on their debut and it’s so ridiculously good you won't want to see it end.

Shimmery, sweet, and stupendously good, Seapony's Go With Me is easily one of my favorite albums of the year. Indie pop doesn't get much better than this and I swear every time I listen to Go With Me I'm lost in a c86 time warp. This record is so good and so recommended that I might just show up at your house and give you a copy!
