DivinumX is always good for some hard-hitting metal and for Ponies at Dawn: Skyward, he brings his ‘A’ game! Kindling is the story of Rainbow Dash telling how she started in the shadow of greatness, longing to be one of the greats who casts that shadow in front of a kindling flame. The vocal work is just incredible, perfecting utilizing the spectrum of techniques from clean singing, guttural screams, and chill-inducing harmonies. The guitar work is fantastic, pairing incredibly with the double pedal bass on the powerful drums making for an all-around top-level song!
There’s nothing like a good Melbourne Bounce track! The springy style is so much fun to bop along with and it is no surprise that BlackIce is a prominent feature on the new Ponies at Dawn: Skyward!

The lead is super catchy and the beat is inescapable – a fantastic track to get you up and moving!
Silva Hound teams up with the bass beast himself, VooDoo for a new, hard-hitting trap hit!

BroniKoni give us a fantastic track for a chilled out, lazy day (or any time you want to listen to a great piece!)
