Pittsburgh four-piece noise pop band feeble little horse have signed to Saddle Creek and will be re-releasing their debut album Hayday as well as an all-new music video for their lead single “Chores”.
After the release of their EP, “modern tourism” in early 2021, the up-and-coming group gained traction performing across Pennsylvania in small, DIY establishments. Just a year later, to celebrate their signing on with Saddle Creek, they will be playing a series of tour dates this winter in Columbus, Washington DC, Chicago, and their hometown – Pittsburgh.

The band has been praised by NPR for their “crunchy textures and delightful little moments of tension” and the “charmingly kooky” sound of their digitized instrumentation matched with scratchy vocals and distorted guitar.
feeble little horse is “intimate and vulnerable and not afraid to seem not-so-rough,” according to Melted Magazine, while still blazing with anger.
With a new label, a successful EP, a well-received album, and an upcoming tour, the four college friends have come a long way from their humble beginnings as a project band in guitarist Ryan Walchonski’s student apartment. However, even as they explore their sound as a group and explore new avenues, lead singer Lydia Slocum still describes each song the band creates in an interview with Paste Magazine as a group effort in which all members become the other’s puzzle pieces in a sense.
The deeply textured nature of their noise-based music, founded on grit and distortion, makes for a compelling listen while their heartfelt lyrics balance off each tune with some clarity and leave listeners wanting more -which is exactly what feeble little horse plans to give.
