Take a stroll with your favorite ponies! No, it doesn’t matter if it’s just the Twilight gang or Sunny’s gang. To a rhythm like this, courtesy of PumpkinZ, it’s the perfect evening to take a walk by the lake with a cold cider and one of your best friends under the dancing stars of Luna’s night. As you look up, the heartbeat of this track gives off this charming scene. The D&B with the sparking and enchanting allure to it set the mood of this track to a dreamy summer night. Oh, and the vocal chops; well, you and your friends are having a good time, as you should when hearing this. As always, This Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
The Ponies at Dawn: Zenith hype continues with a track from returning fandom favorites John Kenza and loophoof. With a combo like this collaborating on a house song, you know it’s going to be top tier, and “Ask Me” certainly doesn’t disappoint – it’s a vibe and a half! Jazzy electric keys and a driving, warm bassline support some funky vocal chops (as we can always expect from loophoof) with a groove that’ll get your head bobbing in no time!
It’s that time again, pony folks – another Ponies at Dawn compilation is soon to be released, which means pre-releases are dropping in anticipation, and hiking up our anticipation in turn! The first to be released from Ponies at Dawn’s 25th compilation record, Zenith, is this sweet, atmospheric track from Canvas and Evr!. Perhaps the song is titled as it is because it’s all too easy to get lost in Kleyna and Liefsong’s soft, wistful vocals and the driving melodies of the drop. Crisp percussion and tasteful chops polish the track to perfection and only leave you wanting more!
There’s always something that blows me away on each Ponies At Dawn album, and I’ve found what Zenith has brought to the table. 4EverfreeBrony is no stranger to prog rock, having previously taken inspiration from Rush, but bringing Drummershy’s influence from Dream Theater into the mix has resulted in this masterpiece! You experience a full range of dynamics, from atmospheric guitars with precisely detailed percussion, to full punchy riffs with synths and string orchestration. Go take a listen for an epic 6 minutes of prog goodness!
Melody returns with an anthem based on the season 9 finale of MLP:FiM and full of determination, displaying a wonderful fusion of metal and pop elements.

Turn that volume up and raise your hooves high – the only way to play this song is at full blast!
Frozen Night’s latest release shows us a piece written a few years ago for the fan game Ambient.White! This piece seems to narrate the aftermath of a battle, and builds some tension while maintaining a sense of determination.
