Pony and Trap have had a very successful early start since the duo’s formation, picking up the 2013 Marshall award for best live performance at the National Student Music Awards. New EP Time to Engage – released on the 2nd June – sees a confident and engaging front woman declare ‘lead us to victory, let history be made’; the commanding vocal presence aligning with well executed guitar riffs from her male counterpart. The band has supported the likes of Peace so are sure to gain experience and a huge following over the next few months.
Support from the likes of Jenny Eels of BBC Introducing who said, “Pony and Trap are my obsession of the week” have led to a sprouting reputation as a formidable live band accompanying the niche audience for their genre. Often being described as similar to The Kills and The White Stripes, the band are sure to make huge movements within the music scene over the next year; fans eagerly anticipating a full album due early next year.
