Indie88 Premiere: PONY share video for sludgy new single ‘Limerence’

"'Limerence' is truly about getting crushed by your crush"

Since the bands inception, Toronto-based grunge-pop outfit PONY has released two EPs, including Crushed and Do You. Their debut full-length is coming in 2020, and today we’re pleased to premiere the latest single from PONY, titled “Limerence.”

“The song is inspired by the all consuming/crushing feeling you get when you initially feel drawn to another person,” the band told Indie88. “It feels like there are butterflies in your stomach made of razor blades. It’s simultaneously amazing and awful when you feel powerful yet vulnerable, and wondering if your feelings are reciprocated can be actual torture.”

Check out the latest video from PONY below.

“‘Limerence’ is truly about getting crushed by your crush, and the feelings that coincide with that. We wanted to tell a story about how exciting it is to feel like you are falling in love, juxtaposed by feeling terrified that the other person might not be falling as hard as you. Lust is a double edged sword.”
