Bad Pony + Neighbour - Deficiency Tour

Growing up and finding a place within the bustling city of Sydney is sure to instil in a band a sense of tirelessness and hard work, and it’s safe to say Bad Pony are one of, if not the hardest working band in Australia. They just don't stop!

Since releasing their debut EP 'Limbo' in 2015, the Sydney-based quintet has independently released three self-produced singles, all with national radio success. On the touring front, this premier indie outfit have clocked up thousands upon thousands of kilometres with three national tours since 2015 and an appearance at Music Matters, Singapore 2016.

Whilst even the most fanatical marathon runner would at least take a moment to stretch out their aching hamstrings, Bad Pony don't seem to show any signs of slowing down. After inking a publishing deal with Perfect Pitch Publishing as well as a booking deal with 123 Agency in 2016, the band have their sophomore EP, 'Deficiency' in the cooker to land into 2017 with a bang. This comes alongside plans to take their award-winning live show across the USA and Canada, with a showcase at Canadian Music Week before returning to their native land for more shows to make 2017 another huge success!

"Musically, ‘Deficiency’ is a leap forward for the band. Balancing grit with glam, the in-ya-face pop-electro confidence is built from a dominant — yet relatively sparse — grinding, mechanical rhythm, that bumps up against a more reflective side (“I’m sick of running out of time”), resembling a introspective nature that’s a far better fit for vocalist Jarred Young’s soulful tone." - Rolling Stone Australia, March 29, 2017

Joined by special guests Neighbour!

Neighbour is anything it wants to be. From intimate solo performances that display influences of Elliott Smith & Paul Dempsey to animated five-piece shows with flares of rock and electronica that could be aligned with Cold War Kids, Metric or Vampire Weekend. The core of Neighbour is based around versatile songs that can lend themselves to multiple situations.

Neighbour has been fortunate enough to perform to many audiences since it's beginnings, sharing stages with the likes of Bluejuice, Margaret Glaspy, Beautiful Girls, British India, The Cairos, Thelma Plum, Ash Grunwald, Sahara Beck, Saskwatch, Cub Sport, Jack Carty & Pierce Brothers just to name a few. August 2016 see's Neighbour embark on a second headline tour for the year in support of new tune 'Alexander Graham Bell'.
