GATEFOLD WALLET WITH LYRIC FOLDOUT
Deja Vu is the new full length album from Melbourne's dearest hypnotic
adventurers Pony Face. Their fifth studio recording strikes a galvanising chord in
the group's pursuit of lush songwriting soundscapes and signals a return that's
been eagerly awaited... a sincere mongrel of inspired songwriting encompassed
in waves of euphoric epiphanies.
Deja Vu draws together long time members of Pony Face: Simon Bailey, Anth
Dymke & Damian Fitzgerald and welcomes to the fold Aria awarding winning
producer/guitarist Shane O'Mara. O'Mara shares production and engineering
hats on the album, as well as being the band's new permanent guitaro.
Deja Vu also features Richard Andrew (Underground Lovers, x-Black Cab) as
well as cameos by lauded singers Lucie Thorne and Talei Wolfgramm.
After having shelved the previous Pony Face album, Bailey began demo work on
a solo venture enlisting the talents of Richard Andrew at Pharmacy Studios to
record bed tracks with 2" tape. The songs were a combination of new ideas and
abandoned off cuts, which were then re-worked and finessed by Shane O'Mara
at Yikesville Studios and quickly evolved into this latest 10 track long player.
From the opening homage for Patti Smith's memoir Just Kids, So Much Said, to
the closing 6 minute angelic drowning of a prison runaway Trinity River, Deja Vu
delivers wave after wave of beauty and longing so familiar you'll swear it rings a
distant forgotten bell.
Pony Face will release Deja Vu on January 26th, 2018 on 180gm Vinyl LP via
label Cobra Snake Necktie Records & self-release on CD. The album launch is
set for January 27th at Howler in Brunswick. Proudly distributed by Rocket.
