This one showed up in my mailbox a few days ago and I just got to it and it’s great. The three members of Chicago/Minneapolis’ ON AN ON used to be part of the five-membered Scattered Trees but out of an unfortunate, transformative splintering came a new project: a ten-tracker called Give In due out January 29th 2013 from Roll Call Records.
Member Nate Eisland says “We really wanted to get away from the sterility of our previous approach to recording,” and it really shows in the fun, eerily ethereal tone of their lead single ‘Ghosts,’ released Oct 12th along with the video below. The video, by Joe Carsello, strangely matches the candor of ‘Ghosts’ with all of its man vs nature imagery [sampled from the 1970 doc 'Threads of Technology'] while the lyrics speak there are spirits coming to find me // they’re not stopping until it’s done // I can feel it taking me over ahead of some spectral falsettos. Pretty beautiful stuff.
