Listen/download: Night Drive – “Queen” (Perfume Genius Cover)


“The psychedelic original is revamped into an electro-pop monster that recalls U2 as much as it does On An On‘s synthier side. Listen below.”  – All Things Go

It’s summer time again and Night Drive is releasing the second installment of their “Summer Covers Series”. Following last years dark disco Radiohead cover (“Where I End and You Begin”), they’ve now filtered the Perfume Genius track, “Queen” through a dancier electronic lens.

ON AN ON – “The Hunter”

Click to listen to “The Hunter” from ON AN ON

ON AN ON have just released “The Hunter” – the second song from their forthcoming debut album Give In, out January 29th via Roll Call Records. “The Hunter” comes on the heals of their incredibly well-received debut single “Ghosts,” which Nylon gushed over as “dream-washed synth-pop that never gets too sweet,” and Consequence of Sound described as “haunted yet exquisitely exposed.” Music lovers seemed to agree, having streamed the song on SoundCloud over 140,000 times in under 5 weeks; an incredibly encouraging phenomenon for a brand new artist’s first introduction to the world.

The Chicago/Minneapolis based trio that make up ON AN ON (Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci, and Ryne Estwing) have played music with one another in various capacities for the better part of a decade before collaborating together as a trio. The culmination of a long and precarious, but ultimately rewarding journey, Give In was recorded with producer Dave Newfeld, known for his work on Broken Social Scene’s seminal album You Forgot It In People as well as records from Super Furry Animals and Los Campesinos.

Check ‘Em Out: ON AN ON

Newly-formed indie group ON AN ON are pleased to unleash “Ghosts,” the first song off their forthcoming debut album, Give In, which is due out January 29 on Roll Call Records. The sound marks a new direction for ON AN ON’s three members – Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci and Ryne Estwing – who had been performing together for the last few years with the indie group Scattered Trees. It was only this past March during the annual SXSW festival that they decided to follow their instincts and change course, with conservative compromises being a thing of the past.

Just two weeks later, the band hunkered down in a Toronto studio with acclaimed producer Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene). With a knack for genre-melding, and a boundary-pushing mindset, Newfeld would prove to be the perfect match for the trio’s new caution-less approach: synthesizers, scattershot electro beats and ambient ear candy would give guitars, bass and drums a newfound ghostly sheen. The end result was Give In, ON AN ON’s ten-track debut album – a dream-washed textural journey armed with a biting perspective on life, love and the commonality of loss.
