New Young Pony Club to play Tripod
13 March is the date as the rather excellent New Young Pony Club come to Dublin - the same month will see the release of their second LP, The Optimist. The five-piece seemed to bear the brunt of a 'nu-rave' backlash to a certain extent when their debut, Fantastic Playroom, was released. Which was a shame, because 24-carat tunes like 'Ice Cream' and 'The Get Go' deserved to be acclaimed as the works of sleek pop genius that they were.
NYPC were one of the first bands of the Friday evening at Electric Picnic a couple of years back, and got the party started to such superb effect that I'm not sure they were bettered all weekend. My Bloody Valentine were playing that weekend, people. This one is not to be missed.
