Poi Dog Pondering are stronger than ever & continue to thrive & evolve on their 10th full length album entitled “KEEP ON LOVING EACH OTHER”. Their unique signature ‘Acous-tronic’ blend of orchestral, rock and dance music influences, shine through with PDP’s ever present irreverence to stylistic conformity.
Lot’s of influences shine through on this NEW album: 60’s & 70’s Sunshine sound of Brazil & southern California, 70’s British rock guitar swagger, mid 80’s British dream pop, 90’s/2000's post rave synth chill groove gospel soul. (Joao Gilberto, James & Bobby Purify, WAR, Nazareth, Primal Scream doing Rolling Stones, Style Council, Nick Drake’s “Bryter Layter”, 4AD /Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil, James, Madchester / Screamadelica sound).
Poi Dog Pondering keep thriving because their ethic has always been about following their musical heart. Their steadfast independence has allowed them to perennially bloom. From bohemian street buskers to impossible to market major label sacrificial lambs, to hard won autonomy
with their own record label; Poi dog pondering have ripened into staunchly independent musical voyagers. They have let every sound that excited them flow through their music and flood it with ever changing colors: Orchestral, Acoustic and Electronic textures. Rock Band Disco, Chicago Stepper Soul & their unique ‘Soul Sonic Orchestra’ Sound. (Threaded all along the way with ‘heart on the sleeve’ lyrics that embrace
the beauty and pain of everyday life).
30+ years down the line there is a bolstered sense of history within the band now. A swagger that comes from having steadfastly carved their own path. It is quite apparent that PDP has always been, and ever will be, in- it for-the-love-of-it; creating and performing. Line up changes are par for the course. PDP is an organic entity, it changes like life does. But there is a core with strong roots & deep personal history, open to new ears and ready to experiment. That’s what keeps it vibrant.
