Taking their cue from the indie pop bands of yore (particularly twee pop acts like the Softies, Talulah Gosh, and the Field Mice), Seapony sound every bit as dreamy, soft, and sweet as their name implies. Seapony formed in 2010, when Danny Rowland and Jen Weidl moved to Seattle. They teamed up with bassist Ian Brewer, Rowland's childhood friend and former bandmate, and the band was born. The newly minted trio wasted no time in recording an album's worth of tunes. Shortly after posting a handful of finished tracks online, the band was picked up by then-fledgling label Double Denim Records; Seapony's debut 7" single, Dreaming, was released on that label soon after. The band's profile enjoyed a healthy boost thanks to the single; by the time 2011 rolled around, Dreaming was featured on Pitchfork and made its way into the rotation on college radio stations. Seapony played their very first live gig soon after. The band's debut full-length album, Go with Me, was released on Hardly Art in 2011.
Field Mouse
Field Mouse
Field Mouse is a four-piece dream pop band from Brooklyn, NY. Seamlessly interweaving influences from shoegaze, indie, and power pop, Field Mouse offers lush sonic textures and expansive soundscapes to complement the airy, wistful vocals of singer/guitarist Rachel Browne. Through complex and delicate harmonies, the songwriting of Browne and guitarist Andrew Futral breathes new life into common themes of lost love and renewal.

The band has been honing its sound since the release of its 2010 debut, You Are Here, and has solidified its lineup with the recent addition of bassist Allison Weiss and drummer Geoff Lewit. Their latest single, "You Guys are Gonna Wake Up My Mom," finds the group realizing the their musical vision, incorporating rich synthesizers and feedback to give an edge to its soaring arrangements and pop sensibilities.
