Ponies In The Surf are quietly one of a kind. Siblings and indie music aficionados Alex & Camile live in Cambridge, MA though they’re originally from Bogota, Colombia. The Ponies make pan-American pop songs with elements Samba, Beatles and the more sophisticated folk set. They're Pop Vocal traditionalists and very much akin to The Violent Femmes and Johnathan Richman in terms of song craft, subtle humor and vulnerability. The Ponies' work is uniquely comforting and highly addictive. It is served with a rare passion and grace. It evokes nostalgia while remaining firmly planted in its own special, almost timeless place. These are simply great songs.

"After playing in rock bands for some time, Alexander McGregor decided at some point that he simply wanted to make some music that could even appeal to his grandmother. Joined by his sister Camille, the duo plays stripped-down folkish type music that sounds like it could have been created at any point in the past 40 years yet still feels fresh." --ALMOST COOL.
"These powerfully quiet traditionalists perform folk songs with a pan-American touch. It's only a shame that music this delicate and warm doesn't garner more notice." --POPMATTERS
