New Young Pony Club cover PJ Harvey at Isle of Wight

Plus Tahita Bulmer and co. cover Squeeze during Big Top set

New Young Pony Club got the crowd at the Big Top stage dancing at the Isle Of Wight Festival earlier tonight (June 15) with a dazzling set which included a cover of PJ Harvey‘s ‘Dress’.

Despite worrying about having to go on at the same time as The Police, who were on the main stage at the same time as the band, New Young Pony Club attracted a reasonable crowd.

“Us against one of the biggest bands in the history of the universe?” singer Tahita Bulmer had earlier said, speaking to NME.COM. “Ah, we’ll hold our own.”

As well as their own songs ‘Ice Cream’, ‘Tight Fit’ and ‘The Bomb’, the band played glam-pop covers of the aforementioned ‘Dress’ and Squeeze‘s ‘Take Me I’m Yours’.

Bulmer also told NME.COM that sessions for her band’s forthcoming new album were going well, with songs sounding “heavy on white noise. A bit like My Bloody Valentine.”

New Young Pony Club played:

‘Get Lucky’



‘Ice Cream’

‘Tight Fit’


‘Take Me I’m Yours’

‘The Bomb’

‘The Get Go’
