Pony Girl – Laff It Off [Streaming]

Today the Ottawa/Gatineau band Pony Girl dropped their album called Laff It Off via Paper Bag Records.
Second album through that label in less than a year and follows the veins from 2022’s Enny One Wil Love You with their atmospheric dream rock and pop-art music.
This time more of a Broken Social Scene sound vibe on Laff It Off, I Believe In Nothing and Never Again.
While Wannabe has that Timber Timbre’s Hot Dreams with that saxophone provided by Joseph Shabason.
Still a wonderful album to listen to.

About the album by Pony Girl:
Laff It Off urges you to let go, a playful departure from the shade of its sister album Enny One Wil Love You. Its spirited title track chants “I don’t wanna be working every day” over and over, rejecting labour and floating on with the tentative smile of those yellow happy face balloons. Playful fingerpicking gives way to surging synths for an opener as catchy as it is cathartic. You’re in Pony Girl’s world now.

From stage fright to sex work, Pascal Huot and Yolande Laroche craft a world of personas with honey-rich voices and a moving desire to persevere. “Highways” softly bends with the fragility of new love, “Wannabe” croons that we’re all performing onstage and off, and “I Believe In Nothing” releases us from darkness with careening guitars, distortion, and pure freedom.

Pony Girl is a kaleidoscope of pop unlike any other, turning everyday life into mesmerizing melodies, rock and electronic production.
