EUT’s “Bad Sweet Pony” Is An Equinophobic Love Song

Love can be scary, like ponies who look all cute and innocent but unexpectedly beat the living crap out of you with their hoofs. Amsterdam-based quintet EUT captures the hypnotic and unfathomable feeling of falling for someone in their new indie pop piece “Bad Sweet Pony.” Embedded with fizzling synths and starry-eyed croons, the song captures the blinding euphoria that someone can inject us without asking for our permission – it’s truly scary if you think about it:

“‘Bad Sweet Pony’ is about a magnetic love that’s been hidden. I don’t even like horses or ponies. They scare the shit out of me and so did this magnetic love.” shared EUT’s Megan de Klerk.

The track is from EUT’s upcoming debut album Fool For The Vibes, out on May 24 via V2 Records. They will kick off their European tour towards the end of this month, so go see them:
