DOWNLOAD: On An On - Ghosts (MP3)
Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci, and Ryne Estwing spent the better part of the Oughts as three-fifths of Chicago-based Scattered Trees. The band were gearing up to record their fourth album, booking time with producer Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene's You Forgot it In People) when... the band broke up. Instead of canceling the studio time, the three of them soldiered on, started from scratch as a new group, On An On.
The results of that can be heard on On An On's debut album, Give In, which comes out January 29 on Roll Call Records in North America and City Slang in the UK. The trio's blend of organic and synthetic sounds is heartfelt, warm and infectious (and maybe a little spooky), giving a good name to "mid-tempo." You can download the album's lead track, "Ghosts," at the top of this post or stream it below, along with the song's video.
On An On are currently on a West Coast/Southwest tour with Geographer but will be heading East for two NYC shows next month: February 6 at Mercury Lounge (tickets) and February 7 at Glasslands with Tiny Victories and Young Heel (tickets).
All tour dates are listed below, along with the "Ghosts" song stream and video.
