There are four artists under the name 'Pony'.
The first is a Toronto-based four-piece composed of Sam Bielanski on vocals and guitar, Eva Link on bass, Stephen Giroux on guitar, and drummer Lucas Horne. After recording and releasing their first EP back in 2015 and rapidly building a fanbase, PONY signed to Buzz Records and released an EP called Do You.
The second is a dissonant punk-pop three-piece from New York City with a lifespan that stretched from 1993 to 1995. They released two albums on Homestead Records (Cosmovalidator and the posthumous El Dorado), as well as a double 7" on Ah-um records and another 7" on U.K.-based Fire Records. Dallas Crowe handled guitar and a majority of the vocals; Kitty DuBois played bass; Jimmy James (AKA James Murphy/LCD Soundsystem) played drums.
The band's live show garnered both praise and ridicule. While the initial offerrings from the band charted territory well within the confines of the noisy punk/pop that carried the day, their later work (ala El Dorado) maps a descent into a darker and more aggressive study of sound. Pony's live shows were, at best, ferocious, a state fueled by the obvious animosity the band members felt toward each other. That animosity eventually destroyed the band.
Jimmy James went on to form DFA records and enjoy much success with his band LCD Soundsystem. Kitty owns a booming and hip small business on the lower east side. Dallas teaches at a small liberal arts college on the west coast.
The third is a pop-rock band from Massachusetts comprised primarily of singer/guitarist Dave Thomas, guitarist Stephen Fredette, bassist Randy Creasi, and drummer Dave Green. Their definitive album, Motorcar, was released in 2006.
The fourth is an independant, solo folk singer from Alice Springs.
