Listen to Wavves’ Infectious New Song, ‘Pony’
Wavves told Noisey that their upcoming album, V, was motivated by the things that keep us all awake at night: “agoraphobia, sleepwalking, teeth grinding, time wasting, night terrors, toxic relationships, Web MD and f---ing up while trying to be better people.” That said, you wouldn’t readily know it by listening to the songs that have emerged from V thus far, as each is more resolute in its exuberant pop-punk mission than the last.
That much holds true for the newly minted “Pony,” too. Take a listen below:
Despite frontman Nathan Williams tirelessly singing about unrequited love and feelings of depression, boredom and insecurity, “Pony”’s central proclamation that “it gets better” is a pretty apt synopsis of the fervent, no-holds-barred sense of joy that lives between the song's guitar-shredding and infectious "woo-hoos."
