The Virgins are your typical downtown hipster band backed by aNYthing, a uber urban hip clothing company with street cred. The Virgins not only have street cred but art world cred, being friends with Ryan McGinley a photographer whose has gained much attention in the art community as well as being friends with Dash Snow, a NYC graffiti artist who is part of the famous oil tycoon family, the De Menils who founded the Rothko Chapel.
That aside The Virgins are way too hip and write way catchy pop songs songs. It is no surprise that WB’s Gossip Girl decided to play their entire EP in one of their episodes. Oh yeah one of their first shows was opening for Patti Smith in Paris. These guys have it made and are going to blow up.

Poney Poney are a pop rock band that have that rough indie garage rock sound with that French pop sensibilty like Phoenix. Xavier from Justice produced a few tracks of theirs which should be interesting to hear once their surface.The vox on this track remind me of PhoenixPoney Poney – AM MusicPoney Poney Myspace
