Pony Face are one of the most revered and beloved bands in the Melbourne music scene. Their songs are mesmerising and immersive: creating layers of sonic electric guitar textures around deep driving bass grooves, with echoes from the Badlands.

 With the recent addition of ARIA award winning guitarist/producer Shane O’Mara, the band has a dazzling energy that captivates both intimate rooms and festival stages. These four unhurried explorers of sound look for light in the dark, quiet corners of song. “Deja Vu” received “Album of the Week” from both SMH and The Age.

Straddling the divide between blissful and brooding, Pony Face take listeners on an aural journey down a highway that links the crystalline intimacy of Sparklehorse, the dark rock noir of Rowland S Howard and the uniquely Australian feel of Dirty Three.

ALBUM OF THE WEEK : Deja Vu
“… gorgeous tones … Pony Face’s now instantly recognisable style… No, we haven’t seen this before.”
???? – Sydney Morning Herald / The Age

“Pony Face are pure class. Unhurried sonic explorers looking for light even in the dark, quiet corners of song. Despite their impressive back catalogue, one has the sense their best work is still to come…” – Karen Leng, Double J

“The groove is in the spaces in between. They allow the music to breathe with possibilities, their supple songs insinuate themselves into the mind, their playing fuses them with the imagination. They are so much more than the sum of their parts.” – Stephen Walker, RRR FM

Turning their back on the stripped back acoustic approach of previous incarnations, for their full-band debut the Lazy Colts have opted for brooding, cinematic landscapes, explosive drums and unhinged sonic textures assisted by the incomparable talents of Canadian mastermind Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre).

Earning their stripes playing Sydney’s pub scene tirelessly Lazy Colts are ready to return to the stage in support of their new tunes.
