Dead Pony : Rainbows

Scottish indie quartet Dead Pony, led by Anna Shields (vocals), Blair Crichton (guitar, programming), Liam Adams (bass), and Euan Lyons (drums), are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated first album, ‘IGNORE THIS,’ scheduled to hit shelves on April 5th, 2024, courtesy of LAB/Seeker Records.

Leading up to the album’s release, the band has unleashed a live favourite in the form of “Rainbows,” a celebration of uniqueness. It certainly has a pulsating rhythm, and Shields makes an excellent advocate for self-empowerment with a vocal that manages to sound strident yet sweetly melodic, not unlike fellow Glaswegian Lauren Mayberry.

Shields reveals that “RAINBOWS” “is a song about loving yourself. Growing up as a teenager, I always felt like a bit of an outcast and I never felt comfortable in my own skin. It’s only as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realised that being true to yourself is the most beautiful thing that you can be and that you don’t need to fit the mould to be worthy of loving who you are.

This song is for 13 year old Anna and all of the other people out there who haven’t yet realised that their differences are beautiful. Just remember, no matter how bleak things may seem, Rainbows always come and things always get better.”
