Pony Fight Is a heavy groove rock band that boasts a sound best described as a driving thunderclap floating above an open field of crisp green grass, interspersed with lyrics that are contemplative and thought provoking. Its first incarnation began here in the Bay Area with Julian Barber on bass and Reed Sandberg on guitar, producing soundscapes and songs in a project they dubbed Sure Catch Trout. After a little bit of time, they added drummer Darryl Dardenne to the group and changed the project name to Dogs That See Rabbits. In 2012, Julian moved to second guitar, and Shawn Miller was picked up to play bass. Thus began the most recent incarnation of Pony Fight in earnest.
We are driven by a desire to catch that musical moment, break it down to its most base layer, and rebuild it into treacherous beauty and intuitive sensory meltdown.
