New Video: Pony Girl – “Because You Loved Me” (cover)


Ottawa’s Pony Girl have released a video for a dreamy, sexy cover of Céline Dion’s “Because You Loved Me.” This one sure came out of left field, but hey, you can’t go wrong with a song by this seminal Canadian music icon.

The song starts off with delicate, sultry vocals by Pascal Huot and Yolande Laroche and intricate, minimalistic instrumentals. The group encircles the now-commonplace light fixture that they use in their live performances. It in intensity, and by the end we’re left with a completely re-imagined interpretation of the song. Listeners instantly become enveloped this modern take on this classic love-making ballad. Be sure to listen to and purchase their impressive catalogue on Bandcamp, including their latest release Foreign Life.

Pony Girl are currently on a massive two-month tour across Canada, and those dates can be found below.
