New Young Pony Club (NYPC) is a five-piece electro band from London consisting of Tahita Bulmer (vocals), Andy Spence (guitar), Lou Hayter (keyboards) and Sarah Jones (drums), and they provide a kind of tight and bass-heavy future discoid noise. Partly inspired by LCD Soundsystem and a chance meeting of like-minded band members intent on establishing something potent, Andy and Tahita formed NYPC in 2005. The band's bassist Igor Volk, quit the band in 2009. Ice Cream, their first single on Modular, was recently used in a television advert, commissioned by Intel for their new Duo processors.

Speaking about Ice Cream, "A lot of [the lyrics are] about the perceived idea of how women are supposed to be, and putting my twist on it," says Tahita. NYPC's sound is a punk funk jerkout that sounds like a distaff version excursion on disco-era Rolling Stones fronted by The Slits' Ari Up, with production reminiscent of David Byrne and Brian Eno.
