Share New Single ’23, Never Me’

Out Now Via LAB Records

Glasgow’s thrilling post-punk exports Dead Pony share new track ’23, Never Me’, released November 6th via LAB Records.
Marshalled by enigmatic frontwoman Anna Shields, the Scottish quartet’s latest effort combines their relentless energy and anthemic powers to perfection, capping off an impressive twelve months for the band, having already piqued the interest of several key indie press champions (NME, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Dork, Gigwise, Upset) and made their mark across the BBC Radio 1 airwaves (Huw Stephens, Jack Saunders).
23, Never Me’ is about cutting ties with toxicity and freeing yourself of negative people and their views”, explains  band leader Shields. “We wrote this track when I had come to a point in my life where I was happy with the people that I was surrounded with and how I just absolutely could not be bothered with dabbling in the falsities that often come part and parcel with certain “friendships”. I wanted this song to give the message that it is always okay to stop associating with people who don’t contribute healthily to your friendship or how it is okay to cut toxic and damaging people out of your life”.

“23, Never Me” starts with this harsh feedback before the angular and piercing instrumentation bring in this aggression to the biting track before the fierce lyrics command your full attention. Dead Pony are one of the most hard-hitting and bold acts of our time. The outfit manages to harness their ability to project their aggression in the most melodic manner, “23, Never Me” captures this high-powered and infectious, rhythmic and raucous energy of this act.

Fast becoming key figures within Glasgow’s thriving indie scene alongside fellow risers The Ninth Wave and Walt Disco, Dead Pony could be not be better positioned heading into 2021 with their debut EP and extensive live plans already in the works, as they look set to continue their unyielding punk assault.
Dead Pony’s ’23, Never Me’ was released November 6th via LAB Records and out now.
