Although I originally purchased The Ponys' new album Turn the Lights Out shortly following its release in March of this year, I hadn't really given it much of a chance until last month. It wasn't until a Monday morning's inevitable rush-hour Tube meltdown that I discovered that The Ponys are actually quite a solid band, and Turn the Lights Out is a great album.

You see, lengthy Tube delays often prompt me to deploy a tactic of listening to an album that I haven't dedicated as much attention to as I should, and this particular morning it was in The Ponys that I found salvation while trapped in an overcrowed, overheated District Line train going nowhere.

Oh sure, it's typical indie rock, but there's a nice 60's vibe to the album and pretty much every track is catchy as hell. First track 'Double Vision' and 'Harakiri' are standouts that deserve a listen. FYI: Hara-kiri is a Japanese colloquialism for Seppuku (a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment).
