Seapony: “Saw The Light”

On their first few releases, Seattle’s Seapony sounded detached and mechanistic even when crafting sugary pop tunes. They nodded towards the Smiths but added drum machines and noisy guitars to cut the sweetness. On their third album, A Vision, Seapony opt for a softer sound, building little melancholy gems around Jen Weidl’s dreamy voice. The added acoustic guitars give the record a real “gather-round-the-campfire” vibe–almost as if the Smiths abandoned rainy Manchester for a trek in the woods. “Saw The Light” has this hazy, late-summer feeling, perfect for a lazy day.
