Biography

The Band: The four guys of The Pony have graced the pages of “Elle Korea” and “Vogue Korea” on several occasions. However, that’s no reason to judge — there’s substance behind their rock star looks.

Vocalist Choi Sang-Min describes their music by saying they want to “deliver attractive points of unclear things and roughness like a runaway car to audiences”.

Choi says the idea of “one nation” and “one family line” in Korea is conflicting with the “young people’s obsession with the capitalist lifestyle. The Pony’s lyrics reflect “the mutated Korean society where tradition is disappearing and has been struggling with self-contradiction,” says Choi.

The Pony is currently working on a new EP that is expected to come out in late August or early September, and will be the culmination of the band’s solo efforts after leaving their record label. Choi said fans should expect big changes on the upcoming EP with a “noisier, colder, confused, moody sound” that is “the truest sound” for the band.

The Music: A sound not dissimilar to The Strokes but definitely with their own spin. There’s even a hint of Morrissey in the Choi’s voice on the track “Crazy Night Love Split Up” (“밤새 미친 사랑을 나뉘요”).

The Song You Need to Hear: Every song on their album is great but “Disturbance” (소란들) is the stand-out track.
