On An On – All The Horses


Every now and again there will be band that will come out of nowhere and take people by surprise people. This is something that seems to have happened to have been a bit of trend that has happened this year, especially with the overwhelming success of the Hookworms and Parquet Courts albums. Well now I can add to that list Minneapolis indie pop trio On An On, who absolutely blew my mind when they played at The Louisiana earlier this week, i havent seen a show in The Louisiana which has used big projection like they did in ages.

All The Horses is taken from the band’s debut album Give In, this was one of the main highlights during their set. You know when ever you go and see a band that you don’t know, but you are enjoying them and there is what a define as a magic moment? Well this was On An On’s real magic moment. Having 3 different vocals that they somehow have managed to caress into harmonies that float along in a dream like fashion, along with reverb drenched melodies.

It Feels like On An On have managed to find a sound that manages to bridge Postal Service’s lofi melodies and the dreamy psychedelic elements that MGMT tried and failed to capture. There’s an element of Grizzly Bear, especially Grizzly Bears cover of the Annie Song. Ultimately it is big a sumptious sounding indie pop music with many layers to it, infact the deeper you delve the more you find.

Give in Is out now!

About bigjeffbristol

I am someone from Bristol in England who is deeply obsessed with live music! its pretty much like an OCD styled obsession that means pretty much every night I am out. I like being down the fron for shows, because then I can feel the music pulsing through me and I am not going to lie to you, I like to dance a lot. Which can make me at times incredibly annoying because of being 6ft4 tall with blonde curly locks so I am the Thoroughly Annoying Blonde!. and I like to preach my geeky musical inertia to people!
