"Pony Face are pure class. Unhurried sonic explorers looking for light even in the dark, quiet corners of song. Despite their impressive back catalogue, one has the sense their best work is still to come..."
Karen Leng, DoubleJ

Pony Face have well and truly established themselves as one of the most revered & beloved bands in the Melbourne music scene. Pony Face have garnered a rare kind of praise for their live shows and records which has earned them the opening spot for lee Ronaldo (Sonic Youth) Bombino and Augie March Boogie Festival, Summer of Soul, Kyneton Music Festival, St Kilda Festival, Hunter Valley Gumball Festival, Apollo Bay, Hills are Alive Festival, Darebin and Brunswick Festival, as well as selling out major rock venues in metro Melbourne and Sydney.

Pony Face's music is a sonic kaleidoscope, encompassing psych/surf guitars, doom drums, bass lines moulded from rock bottom and sampled textural layers which have become synonymous with a loud spacial sound.

Straddling the divide between blissful and brooding, Pony Face take listeners on an aural journey down a highway that links the crystalline intimacy of Sparklehorse, the dark rock noir of Rowland S Howard and the uniquely Australian feel of Dirty Three.

Pony Face have released 4 full length studio albums, including 2012's 'Hypnotised' which was nominated for EG's Best Album. Most recently Pony Face took on and interpreted Bruce Springsteen's classic album Nebraska, and performed it as a part of Rockwiz presents Pure Pops Records Classic albums, it was the first of 74 acts to sell out.
