Pony Pony Run Run, an Angers English singing band is about to turn out a new album

In spite of their name, they are... Angevins and well known outside of Angers. Pony Pony Run Run is a French power pop band born in that city and formed in Nantes in 2003. After the success of their first record and above the title "Hey you", sold at 40 00 copies, the band is going to turn out a new album. That one was broadcasted by Daily Motion on February 23rd. One of the main charasterics of the ban is its member sing... in English, because they say their musical culture is about 90% Anglo-Saxon.

Pony Pony Run Run was created in Angers by two brothers, Gaëtan et Amaël Réchin Lê Ky-Huong, respectively guitar/vocal and bass. Later they will meet Antonin Pierre, keyboard. The three members are simply named "G" (guitar/vocals), "A" (bass) and "T" (keyboards). The style of the band has been defined by the daily English The Guardian : "Pony Pony Run Run do something simple: they do the synth-pop thing with a French disco tinge and a smidgen of US yacht rock sensibility". 

To date, the group has released one studio album and two singles. Their début album, You Need Pony Pony run Run was released on 8 June 2009. The first song to be taken from the album, "Hey You" was released in September of the same year and reached 8th rank in Belgium, as well as achieving a position of 19th rank in the French singles chart.The band had performed live in 2011 at the famous Jersey Live Festival in August.
