Pseudo-Individual/Mazes, the first official release from duo Exclamation Pony, will be released September 23via Cult Records. Band member Ryan Jarman notes that the double A-side was recorded "at a frenzied pace in and around New York City, at various studios, basements, bedrooms and anywhere else we happened to find ourselves."
Exclamation Pony is Ryan Jarman of The Cribs and Jen Turner of Here We Go Magic. The two met one night in Tokyo, where both bands happened to be playing a festival. By sunrise the next morning the two were inseparable. Shortly thereafter Jarman moved to Brooklyn to be with Turner, at which point they began collaborating musically. After several breakneck recording sessions, the pair posted a free download of a new song, "Rumours," in February of 2013. Within days of its release, the song garnered praise from NME, BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe and KCRW DJ Kramer. While the band has played several sold out shows in New York and the U.K. and debuted considerable material, Pseudo-Individual/Mazes is their first official release.
Cult Records is helmed by Julian Casablancas of The Strokes. In addition to Exclamation Pony, forthcoming releases include music from C O L O R, Albert Hammond Jr., Rey Pila, Reputante and more.
