New Young Pony Club are no more - and in their place are NYPC. Because deciding to shorten their name wasn't as much a rebranding or relaunching as it was a sign of wholesale rebirth: for their 3rd studio album 'NYPC', recorded and self-produced in London, singer Tahita Bulmer and multi-instrumentalist Andy Spence decided to shut everything and everyone else out. Their partnership is NYPC - and their creative chemistry and shared vision is what makes 'NYPC' their most forward-thinking and refined album so far.
'It Feels Like a new band in one way' says Andy, talking about their decision to be a duo. 'But Ty and I had been writing for at least a year or more before anyone else had entered the frame - the majority of (debut album) 'Fantastic Playroom' has already been written and recorded with just us. So it feels like we've just come back to the honest position where we've started'.
They began to work on 'NYPC' in early 2011. After they released their skittering single 'You Used To Be a Man' last May they realised this was the blueprint for the rest of the album - smart, miinimal and sophisticated pop music that would be more intelligent than dumbed-down chart fodder.
'NYPC' draws on the strengths of their last two albums but pushes it forward into new, uncharted territory preceded by the coquettish rattle-and-hum of 'Hard Knocks'.
