Vancouver psychedelic pop band Ponytails share new video for the song "Just Yours".
Ponytails came to fruition in March 2016, spawned from best friends Harvey Merrit (vocals, bass) and Travis Goeres (lead guitar) love of pizza and the theme music of Sylvester Stallone movies. Liam Less (bass, rhythm guitar, vocals) and Simon Furminger (drums, vocals) joined in late
March and in September 2016 started working on their self titled EP.
Recorded at Little Red Sounds with Felix Fung and recorded over the course of three long days really pushed the band and producer to their fullest. The band released their first single "Pieces" on October 1st 2016 followed by a full release of the EP on November 1st.
Drummer Simon Furminger left the band late September 2017, to be joined by Graham Serl, a powerful addition to round out the bands sunburnt surf sound.
They have shared the stage with the likes of, La Luz, Widowspeak, Peach Pit, and Leisure Club. Ponytails will be releasing a series of EP's and music videos starting in July and will release a
full length LP in the spring of 2019.
“Just Yours” is about the ways in which we find each other. It’s about accepting your love for someone, and gratitude for experiencing such a feeling. It’s about trusting the heart, and
leaning into the moment without expectation for the future. We can find joy in the
mystery – even when it’s confusing or difficult.
"We wanted to create a video that poked fun at the hilarity and absurdity of human nature; taking TGIF imagery and juxtaposing it with scenarios inspired by real life events. Unbelievable occurrences that feel more at
home in the plot of a sitcom than they do on a breaking news channel.
On this new song, we wanted to bring back the excitement and energy of ‘60s pop music. Although the themes of those times may feel a bit cheesy nowadays, I always felt they have so much passion and emotion in
them. I’d say we were going for something that was whimsical,
somewhat mysterious and just pure fun like going to a great
party.It’s a celebration!
It really doesn’t matter who or what you love – just that you’re experiencing it. When we experience love, we are at home. It’s important to remember that this feeling doesn’t only apply to romance. It can be for a friend, a
pet, or that moment when you bite into your favourite slice of pizza.
Love is here and we are it."
