    "Empires" is a nod to the cyclical rise and fall of one's own personal empires--love, loss, and the hopeful glimmerings of a new beginning. Now based full-time in Brooklyn, Carrie Erving writes songs that draw heavily on the influences of the four years she spent living in Europe: her love of electronic drums and analog synthesizers are a product of living for three years in Berlin, Germany, where she recorded and released her debut album and became a critically-acclaimed staple in the Berlin music scene under the moniker "Erving," and a year in Ireland studying the aural tradition of ballads and Sean-Nos singing helped her to shape an intensely personal and melodic singing and songwriting style. Moving to Brooklyn in 2010, she reunited with friends from the indie rock community on her native side of the Atlantic and formed Ponyhof, a New York-based collective of musicians performing her new songs. Enlisting the help of renowned DFA mixer Eric Broucek to mix Ponyhof’s full-length debut, "Empires" showcases the talents of cellist and album co-producer/arranger Chris Loxley, drummer Ricky Petraglia, and bassist Robert Sahm (Le Loup), and features guest vocals by Erving's friend Will Butler (Arcade Fire).

    “Deftly bridging the gap between the lovely French electronic movements of Air and the touching classic American soft rock of a Gerry Rafferty or Michael Murphey— all the while including the subtle rancor found within the products of such otherwise grandiose bands as Coldplay and U2— Oceanographer arises from the BK indie pile as a singular, wonderful delight. Led by the sad, steady vocals of Jeremy Yocum, this group can easily aim for levels of midlevel major success, and if the right ears find them… well, let’s just say Oceanographer could very well end up a band you’ll want to be able to brag that you saw back when they were only playing the little stages in town."
