Seapony premieres “With You” video on YoursTruly, announces West Coast dates

By August 9, 2011No Comments

Taking their cue from the indie pop bands of yore (particularly twee pop acts like the Softies, Talulah Gosh, and the Field Mice), Seapony sound every bit as dreamy, soft, and sweet as their name implies. Seapony formed in 2010, when Danny Rowland (the band’s primary songwriter) moved back to Seattle with his girlfriend (and soon to be lead vocalist for Seapony), Jen Weidl. They teamed up with bassist Ian Brewer, Rowland’s childhood friend and former bandmate, and the band was born. The newly minted trio wasted no time in recording an album’s worth of tunes. Shortly after posting a handful of finished tracks online, the band was picked up by then-fledgling label Double Denim Records; Seapony’s debut 7″ single, “Dreaming,” was released on that label soon after. The band’s profile enjoyed a healthy boost thanks to the single; by the time 2011 rolled around, “Dreaming” was featured on Pitchfork and made its way into the rotation on college radio stations. Seapony played their very first live gig soon after, rounding out their live lineup with the help of their friend John on drums. The band’s debut full-length album, Go with Me, was released on Hardly Art in 2011. Seapony embarked on their first U.S. tour to support the album, appearing on-stage with the likes of the Beets and Beach Fossils. –Margaret Reges for AllMusic
