Pony Asteroid

Virgin nature and big cities,
heavens and hells,
glory and death,
music and silence…
We all love ups and downs, it makes our hearts beat stronger.

The band is working on their debut album with Grammy-winning
producer Reuven Amiel in Miami.
While the album is being finished some of the members moved to Berlin. They will be playing soon in different Berlin venues and other
