Pony! - 2014 - Cuantas Veces?

Pony! is a two piece emo band from Lima, Peru. Cuantas veces? is their debut LP. Pony! plays a catchy, shaggy brand of emo unafraid of bringing in some math rock, screamo or jump straight up and down pop punk for flavour and energy. The singer has an excellent shout that can have a rough edge to it while the guitars dance around a sometimes twinkly melodic post-hardcore emo sound. Here's where I would usually list my favourite songs but there's no point when an LP is this loaded with great songs.If you like your emo with some post-hardcore shouting and a little twinkle, Pony!'s Cuantas Veces? will serve well.
