Pit Pony 'World To Me' LP
With a rawness that owes influence to the North East coast they call home, Pit Pony are a caustic, fuzz-rock five-piece from Tyneside. The band create an adrenaline fuelled soundtrack for frontwoman Jackie to explore tales of political ineptitude, mental health, motherhood and failed relationships.
With their first new music since 2020, Pit Pony return with their foot firmly on the throttle. Their debut album explores themes of identity, isolation, anxiety, motherhood and although not intentionally, the impact of the pandemic on us all. Songs like Tide of Doubt and Black Tar are quite visceral which Jackie describes as an ‘outlet for the pent up anxiety of isolation and the what seems like constant bad news coming at us from all angles’. World To Me and See Me Be explore the experience of having a baby and navigating life after that. ‘Best Is Yet’ is more of a love letter to Jackie’s younger self, with ‘Supermarket’ and ‘Cold’ exploring themes of complex relationships and self preservation.
