Nypc Announce New Self-titled Album 7th October 2013 Download First Single 'Hard Knocks'

NYPC, formally New Young Pony Club, return with a self-titled third album, released on 7th October 2013.  The album will be preceded by the first single, 'Hard Knocks', which is released on Monday 12th August.
 
New Young Pony Club are no more - and in their place are NYPC. Because deciding to shorten their name wasn't as much a rebranding, or relaunching, as it was a sign of wholesale rebirth: for their third studio album 'NYPC', recorded and self-produced in London, singer Tahita Bulmer and multi-instrumentalist Andy Spence decided to shut everything and everyone else out. Their partnership is NYPC - and their creative chemistry and shared vision is what makes 'NYPC' their most forward-thinking and refined album so far.
 
"It feels like a new band in one way," says Andy, talking about their decision to be a duo. "But Ty and I had been writing for at least a year or more before anyone else had ever entered the frame - the majority of [debut album] 'Fantastic Playroom' had already been written and recorded with just us. So it feels like we've just come back to the honest position where we've started."
 
Andy and Ty began work on 'NYPC' in Early 2011, bouncing around ideas as they always have in their studio in North London.  They quickly amassed a slew of new material - half of which was sleek and sparse, half which was more traditional and reminiscent of 2010's 'The Optimist. But after they released their skittering, skeletal single 'You Used To Be A Man' last May they realised it set out the blueprint they wanted to follow for the rest of the album: smart, minimal and sophisticated pop music that would be both more intelligent than dumbed-down chart fodder, and more fun than earnest, po-faced indie. "Things are either accepted as being very muso or very pop," declares Andy. "And we reacted against both of them."
 
'NYPC' is their most focused and coherent album yet, drawing on the strengths of their last two albums but pushing it forward into new, uncharted territory, preceded by the coquettish rattle-and-hum of 'Hard Knocks'.
