Independent Artist of the Week: Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys

January 30th 2020

Flaunting delicious saxophone and jangly electric guitar riffs, Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys are reviving 70’s Americana in all of its glory, but with a modern twist.

Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys’ new one ‘Make You Feel Blue’ has been dubbed as:

One of the finest slices of country soul you’ll hear this year. A gorgeous mood with that voice that hangs heavy in the air and dips into all the right forlorn corners.”

There’s an awfully magical and nostalgic quality to the single, with a calming bluesy instrumental and vocals comparable to those of Stevie Nicks that echo atop. Lead singer Cailtin Harnett fills the void that is a distinct lack of alt-country in Sydney’s music scene. Whether you’re in the big smoke or by the water, this track is bound to become an instant addition to your summer playlist.

Check out ‘Make You Feel Blue’ and the accompanying video clip directed by Aimee-Lee X. Curran and filmed by Jack Saltmiras below.

Tune into Up For It with Courtney Ammenhauser every Monday morning from 6am to meet your Independent Artist of the Week!
