Poni Hoax

Poni Hoax are an electronic/pop/rock act out of France formed in 2001. The band utilizes many different moods and styles, from upbeat funky jams to moody downtempo tracks that would fit well in a David Lynch movie. Obviously I'm drawn to their tracks that fit in the latter. The band shines best to these ears when they focus on brooding vocals that hit right in the gut. For this reason, the latest album Tropical Suite has yet to really click with me, as it overall has a brighter atmosphere, but I've been enjoying much of the bands past catalog. Here are a few of my favorite tracks. The Paper Bride and Budapest (a collaboration with Olga Kouklaki) are downright infectious. Enjoy!
