I stumbled across Poni Hoax for the first time back in 2010 while listening to a Modern English channel on Pandora. The hook of The Paper Bride, which appeared on MF10, dug into me and I swore I would give them a full listen to ASAP. Well, that finally happened this Summer and when I found out they planned a new release in September, I knew that a track would have to end up on the Fruitcake.
This is that track and it holds all the elements that I found so inviting in my selection from 2010: a catchy quirkiness, a familiar strangeness and lyrics that haunt me with their substance.
