Biography

Seapony is an American indie-pop trio that formed in Seattle in June of 2010.  The band's first four songs were posted to the band's bandcamp site on August 24th.  Numerous write-ups lead to the release of their first 7" single with London-based Double Denim Records, due out mid-November.  The band consists of Jen Weidl (rhythm guitar/vocals), Danny Rowland (lead guitar/drum machine), and Ian Brewer (bass).  
Seapony have been described as sounding "...like they could have been on a cassette the cops found locked away in Phil Spector's vault when everything started going wrong" (Altered Zones) and writing "irresistible pop songs infused with little bursts of warm air and just the right amount of static" (The Road Goes Ever On).
Bloggers have painted the band as surfy, twee, airy, and retro.  Apparent influences on Seapony are Beat Happening, The Softies, and The Ventures.

"Seattle's Seapony make irresistible pop songs infused with little bursts of warm air and just the right amount of static. lead track 'dreaming' is the perfect pop nugget that has the hooks of best coast the slackerisms of pavement and could have easily been a long lost sarah records single back in the day." - Rough Trade

"Seattle’s Seapony sound like they could have been on a cassette the cops found locked away in Phil Spector’s vault when everything started going wrong. Luckily this is no time capsule band produced at gunpoint but its the simultaneously sunny and sad, jangle-pop romance bundled inside “Dreaming” which gives the track a foggy, warm-hearted and delicately scuffed nostalgia akin to the breezy, honeyed hits of bygone days." - Altered Zones
