Single Review | Dead Pony | Bullet Farm

Rising Scottish punk-rock band Dead Pony have returned with their first new single of the year, Bullet Farm.

Since rebranding as Dead Pony in early 2020, the Glasgow based rockers have taken to a full gallop. Signing with LAB records was an amazing achievement for them, and ever since their popularity has expanded.

Sporting a more grunge infused sound than their previous tracks, Bullet Farm mixes thumping bass and high pitched, energetic guitar riffs to create an amazing sound that rock fans will love. This is a departure from their usual post-punk melodies, but is performed expertly.

Beginning with blaring sirens, the high energy track akin to the work of Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters. It really evokes some of that early 2000’s nostalgia. The vibe of the track is like controlled chaos. Images of a riot, probably aided by the sirens, are very vivid.

“Bullet Farm is about excitement, turbulent energy and defiance”

Shields’ delivery is comparable to classic Avril Lavigne, while she was at her peak. The chorus is infectious, with catchy lyrics, insanely upbeat drums and a guitar riff that just fills you with energy. This song will be a crowd pleaser.

Dead Pony play at King Tuts on May 7th for The Road to Great Escape. Here they promise to perform Bullet Farm for the first time. This kicks off a big month for the band, who will be supporting Twin Atlantic on tour as well as playing at The Great Escape festival in Brighton. They’re even set to play at TRNSMT in summer, all of which will only contribute to their meteoric rise.
