Luke Beetham and Stacy Peck of Pony Time: are they or aren’t they? The question that’s on everyone’s mind will finally be answered on the new Pony Time record Rumours 2: The Rumours Are True. Yes, it’s true. The Seattle two-piece has a new hit album recorded at Earwig Studio in the same style of Fleetwood Mac’s classic album, replacing the copious amounts of cocaine with Gatorade and tumultuous love affairs with trips to Arby’s.

Their fourth full-length, which they are self-releasing, combines Beetham’s crunchy, hum-into-your-hairbrush catchy reverb-drenched bass tones and emotive howl with Peck’s powerful drum beats to create eleven all-out ragers that thrash around as wildly on the record as they do at their sweaty, energetic whirlwind live shows. Pony Time takes the best parts of the garage rock sound and leaves behind the bonehead bro attitude, creating a sound that transcends the genre with pure, heart-swelling energy and the kind of magical chemistry that only exists between bandmates who are friends in real life.

Stacy and Luke met helping a friend move a stereo in 2009, and soon after Stacy became Luke’s electrician apprentice before realizing that what they really wanted to do was start a band together. Peck (who also plays drums in notorious feminist supergroup Childbirth) is an Aries and music video director who enjoys television and giving inanimate plush toys silly voices while Luke is a galactic activation portal Libra who is not only a magician behind the bass, but can also do a surprising number of card tricks. But where Pony Time truly shine is when they bring in their best friend, crush, and pop punk superstar chanteuse Lisa Prank on board to form the super group Party Girls and scream the last song on the record, “Stop Talking To Me.”

“Peck’s drums open the ferocious track, with Beetham’s guitar slowly escalating and gradually accumulating more fuzz as time goes on. Despite the upbeat tempo, Beetham’s shaky voice captures the true melancholy of the song.” – Consequence of Sound

“The churning, infectious thrum of “Geordie” finds singer/guitarist Luke Beetham and drummer Stacy Peck invoking the single-minded, light-speed pop of the Undertones and Buzzcocks, as Beetham’s vocals slice through his guitar work while Peck’s tumbling drum parts makes her seem like she’s everywhere at once.” – Pitchfork
