NEW YOUNG PONY CLUB The Optimist (The Numbers).
NEW YOUNG PONY CLUB The Optimist (The Numbers) THEY famously said they didn't want to be the biggest band in the world, and don't do radio-friendly. If that's still the plan then NYPC may just have lost the plot - because an opening hat-trick of New Wave disco driven Lost A Girl, indie funk pop powered Chaos, and the irresistible 80s-accentuated title track fair scream chart success. With frontwoman Tahita Bulmer sounding better than ever, ballad Stone is another winner, a song that would sit comfortably in a PJ Harvey setlist. Catch them live at Birmingham's O2 Academy on Tuesday night. PC
