Luke Beetham and Stacy Peck of Pony Time: are they or aren’t they? The question on everyone’s mind will finally be answered on the group’s latest record Rumours 2: The Rumours Are True. Yes, it’s true. The Seattle two-piece has a new hit album recorded at Earwig Studio in the same style of Fleetwood Mac’s classic, replacing the copious amounts of cocaine with Gatorade and the tumultuous love affairs with trips to Arby’s.Their fourth full-length, Rumours 2 combines Beetham’s crunchy, catchy, hum-into-your-hairbrush bass tones and emotive howl with Peck’s powerful drum beats to create eleven all-out ragers that thrash around as wildly on the record as they do at their sweaty, energetic live shows. Pony Time takes the best parts of garage rock and leaves behind the bonehead bro attitude, for a sound that transcends the genre with pure, heart-swelling energy and the kind of magical chemistry that only exists between bandmates who are friends in real life—in other words, they zero in on Troggs-like hooks, Wounded Lion pop-sense, and Beat Happening’s sense of whimsy.
