Review: Pance Pony - ‘METAMORPHOSIZED’

By / EP / Friday, 28 August 2020 09:00

American Alt-pop up-and-comer Pance Pony’s debut EP Metamorphosized is a fresh and at times playful journey into the darkest reaches of the mind.

Pance Pony started off her career as a cellist and, after winning the best songwriter award at the Global Music Awards, she enrolled at NYU where she expanded her musical knowledge to encompass, among others, pop, folk, EDM, and musical theatre. This wide musical Skillset has enabled her to create a dynamic, original EP that fuses all of her influences.

Pony’s playful songwriting is evident from the jump as the cheerfully intimidating 'Bloodthirsty' gets the show on the road before 'Forever Broken' puts her musical theatre know-how on display as she muses on loving someone who's been irreparably damaged.

'Tangled in Light' dabbles in the ethereal but misses the mark slightly as it verges on cliché, saved only by the honesty of the rap-lyrics towards the end.

'HYLMN', the curtain call, sees Pony going back to her roots. With cello in hand, she showcases her vocal prowess as she finds the strength to open herself up to the listener and put herself on full display, flaws and all.

With her unrelenting honesty and unique songwriting style, Pance Pony gives her debut EP an identity of its own, her vast array of influences making it difficult to compare the piece to anything else on the market.
