NYPC, formerly the elongated New Young Pony Club, have re-emerged with a new album, scheduled for release in October.
As well as shortening their name, the group have also cut down their personnel too – condensing from a fivepiece to the duo of frontwoman Tahita Bulmer and multi-instrumentalist Andy Spence.
NYPC will follow up their former band’s 2010 effort The Optimist with a self-titled LP released on 7 October. This will be preceded by single ‘Hard Knocks’ during August.
“It feels like a new band in one way,” says Spence of the seeming rebirth. “But Ty and I had been writing for at least a year or more before anyone else had ever entered the frame – the majority of ‘Fantastic Playroom’ had already been written and recorded with just us. So it feels like we’ve just come back to the honest position where we’ve started.”
