  • The Golden Pony’s Timothy Layn Launches New Synth-Rock Duo, STRAINJER, w/ Debut Single, “Cherry’s Bent”


    Anyone that’s a fan of house music knows of The Golden Pony, the brainchild of NYC’s Timothy Layn, who has delivered sensational remixes for the likes of Rudimental and Hillary Duff, along with stellar originals that all together have amassed over 50 million digital streams and even a #1 hit on Beatport.

    While The Golden Pony remains intact, Timothy is stepping into a brand new project titled STRAINJER. On top of the dynamic sound that he crafts as a gifted multi-instrumentalist, Layn’s true passion with STRAINJER is now being able to delve into the world of lyrics and vocal music, his main goal ever since he became a musician. “I originally moved to NYC to start a band, rather than produce straight dance music. The Golden Pony actually began as a 5 piece electro-rock band, but after some remixes went viral, I decided to pursue dance music and DJing. My true passion is with live vocal based music, and now I feel I have learned enough skills to go back to it and be globally successful.” With these skills, Layn says his “goals are to write hit rock songs that sound and feel ‘fresh’, in terms of the sounds and production used to make them.” 

    Paired with this announcement of STRAINJER is the debut single, “Cherry’s Bent“, a lo-fi synth rock masterpiece that feels like an instant hit. Backed by sparkly synth sounds, a rumbling bass line, and glitzy guitar melodies, Layn’s vocal shines carries a certain captivating edge that seems to set apart STRAINJER’s presence in the industry. Mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Fleetwood Mac, Bloc Party), “Cherry’s Bent” is powerful debut and only leaves us excited for what’s ahead.
