On an On release new single "Drifting"
Their debut album, Give In, was one of my favorites of 2013 which is why I was stoked to learn today that Minneapolis trio On an On are planning to release the sophomore album later this summer. While the title and release date of that EP are still TBD, the band have already offered up first single this week, the hauntingly gorgeous track "Drifting." According to the band the song "is inspired by falling asleep behind the wheel and trying to forget unforgettable things. We've never had a song that sounded this naked" - and I wholeheartedly concur and look forward to more to come.
Kicking off what is looking to be a big year for the group, they will make a slew of appearances at SXSW before setting out on a spring tour jaunt with Big Data.
