With a New Album, ON AN ON Play Mercury Lounge Tonight

February 6th, 2013

While standing in line together for a show in Austin, Texas, Midwesterners Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci and Ryne Estwing decided to forgo their current projects to work together as ON AN ON. Wanting to avoid over-processed, polished music, the three headed to Toronto to collaborate with producer Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals). “We really wanted to get away from the sterility of our previous approach to recording,” said Eiesland. And what they moved toward in the recently released Give In, is 10 caution-less songs filled with electro beats, synths and ambient sounds, not to mention a healthy dose of guitar, bass and drums. Give the album a listen, below, watch ON AN ON, above, do “The Hunter” for JBTV and then go see them play Mercury Lounge tonight.
