Seapony Swim Out To Twee

The music of Seapony is refreshing in its simplicity. Most songs on Go With Me use no more than three chords, with an average running time around two-and-a-half minutes. In lieu of a human drummer, the Seattle trio entrusts time-keeping to a vintage gizmo the size of a desktop calculator.

Seapony are awesome at what they do.  This band channels the Sarah Records ethic so well that you'd swear you were listening to a single from 1993.  If "Dreaming," is any indication of what the future holds, I suspect we'll all be wearing anoraks real soon. 

The lyrics to "Dreaming," the track that catapulted them into the spotlight, are just six lines long. Like Young Marble Giants and Beat Happening before them, this young three-piece has generated excitement that belies their music's modest means. And their back story is just as no-nonsense....
