Chrome Pony released Past Lives back in 2016 and spent the past three years playing out, writing a bunch of new songs and working through recording false starts. Fortunately, they found themselves at Battle Tapes and were able to put down an entire record, set for release sometime in 2019. The first fruit of that labor can be heard in “Taking My Time“, the searing new single.
The accompanying video places the band in a competitive The Voice style competition that, hilariously, transitions into some sort of sunken place when one of the judges realizes the potency of the song. It’s a clever commentary on the state of rock music with just the right dash of absurdist fun. Basically, it’s exactly the kind of rambunctious fun you want from a rock song.
The band informs me that there are two more singles set for release in the coming months spawned from the Battle Tapes recording sessions and if “Taking My Time” is any indiciation, they’re going to provide a quality soundtrack to the summer.
