Falling For Seapony
If you're old enough to remember Sarah Records, The Pastels, The Loft and the joy of perpetual jangly pop, then you will absolutely adore 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 almost embarrassing. Their album, Falling 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, Falling is a fun filled romp through fields of heather in the summer and sleigh rides in the winter. Utilizing very little technology, three chords, and a minimal is more songwriting style, the band create twelve rushes of pop that are shy, shuffly, and under three and a half minutes long. Seapony have fallen into such a effervescent love affair with jangly pop on Falling; and it’s such a beautiful relationship you won't want to see it end.
Shimmery, sweet, and stupendously good, Seapony's Falling is easily one of my favorite albums of 2012. Indie pop doesn't get much better than this and I swear every time I listen to Falling I get 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 or force the band to play in y our front yard!
