New Young Pony Club preview 'The Optimist' at London club show

Band showcase second album in Soho

New Young Pony Club preview 'The Optimist' at London club show
New Young Pony Club previewed their forthcoming second album 'The Optimist' by playing an intimate London club gig last night (February 9).

The four-piece played a show at the Madame JoJo's venue in Soho, treating the crowd to newies including 'Lost A Girl', 'We Want To' and 'Chaos'. They also covered 'Dress' by PJ Harvey.

While some critics who have had early listens have hailed the new album (out March 8) as a darker affair than the band's 2007 debut, 'Fantastic Playroom', the band stuck to the punchier, dance-influenced songs from 'The Optimist' for their setlist. 'We Want To' in particular drew an enthusiastic crowd response.

They ended their set with older single 'The Bomb'. The band now play a Shockwaves NME Awards Show at London's Carling Academy Islington on February 22.

New Young Pony Club played:

'Dolls'
'Hiding On The Staircase'
'Chaos'
'Ice Cream'
'Lost A Girl'
'Dress'
'The Get Go'
'We Want To'
'The Bomb'
