The latest in a drive of thrilling talent bursting straight out of Glasgow, Scottish punks Dead Pony continue to battle the negativity created by toxic people with the frantic new cut 23, Never Me.
It’s a gritty, catchy piece of empowering punk which puts frontwoman Anna Shields right up there with the likes of Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell and Dream Wife’s Rakel Mjöll. Thrashy guitars add an air of effortless cool to elements of addictive pop, making for a riotous, yet easy to listen to cut from a band with bucketloads of talent.
“’23, Never Me’ is about cutting ties with toxicity and freeing yourself of negative people and their views”, explains Anna. “We wrote this track when I had come to a point in my life where I was happy with the people that I was surrounded with and how I just absolutely could not be bothered with dabbling in the falsities that often come part and parcel with certain “friendships”. I wanted this song to give the message that it is always okay to stop associating with people who don’t contribute healthily to your friendship or how it is okay to cut toxic and damaging people out of your life”.
