Inspired by the likes of Duran Duran and Wet Wet Wet, Pony Pony Run Run chose their distinct name to stand out and and leave a lasting impression. The band was formed back in 2003 when brothers Gaëtan (guitar/vocals) and Amaël (bass) met Antonin (keyboard) while attending art school in the picturesque city of Nantes, France. After three years of touring extensively throughout Europe, the guys hooked up with prolific producer Frédéric Lo and collaborated on their debut album You Need Pony Pony Run Run which was released this past June.

The trio was raised on pop music of the 80’s and 90’s and makes no apologies for it. They list Nirvana and 2 Unlimited (think ’91 jock jam ‘Get Ready For This’) among their favorite artists. The rock and electronic vibes are evident in their first hit single “Hey You”, which went top 20 in the French and Belgian charts.

French acts who make the choice to sing in English have had varied success but Pony Pony Run Run appears to be a success story as they canter along bearing the flag for le pop français. Rumor has it that the boys have been approached by some high profile artists to act as support in future European tours. The boys are about to release their sophomore single “Walking The Line”.
