“[Pony Girl has an] ability to push the boundaries that define ‘pop-rock’” Mixtape Magazine

Pony Girl masterfully explore the tension between what we want and what we have on their sophomore album Foreign Life. Guy-girl pop vocals score the foreign lives we create when we cheat on a partner (“Adultery”), lose a friend (“All That There Is”), force a smile (“Foreign Life I”), and further divides separating fantasy from reality. Pascal Huot and Yolande Laroche’s alluring harmony is our paradox as we struggle to close the distance.

The Ottawa collective have been lauded for their “evocative soundscapes” (CBC Radio), and “musical depth quite astonishing to experience” (Exclaim!) since the release of their debut album, Show Me Your Fears, in 2013.

Audiences have been mesmerized by their sets at festivals including Le Festival d’été de Québec, Arboretum, Ottawa Bluesfest, CityFolk, Ottawa Jazz Festival, FUZE New Music Festival and on several tours of Canada. Pony Girl released their sophomore album Foreign Life through So Sorry Records on November 7, 2015.
