You may not recognise PON CHO‘s work when you first glance at his name but he’s a Sydney producer who is part of Thundamentals but is now stepping out on his own.
Lonely Walls is the first cut we’ve heard from him and it’s a triumphant, rumbling tracks featuring the honey-soaked tones of Paige IV, the vocalist who we heard on LDRU’s Keeping Score. The track rolls up pop sensibilities with a TNGHT-esque abrasiveness which makes it both ready for the club and the radio.
Not only is it PON CHO’s first single but it’s also the first release off Night High Records, a new label helmed by Project U‘s Nic Kelly. Kelly and Project U have become important voices within the Australia pop sphere, so it makes sense that this first release is a monumental banger.
