New Young Pony Club – The Optimist

Self-produced, self-funded and self-released

Let’s get straight to business: NYPC have grown up. Not only have they grown up but they’ve self-produced, self-funded and self-released their second offering ‘The Optimist’. Gone are the floor filling anthems of their climatic debut to be replaced by heady synth and bass drives that delve deep into emotional territories so neglected by previous material. The most exciting thing about this new ethos is that the band themselves are in control, which over time they will adapt, create a greater understanding of what they are trying to achieve and produce some stunning masterpieces. The tricky second album phase has been completed and it’s an excellent product. The future’s bright.
