“It’s Not Over” by ON AN ON, from their forthcoming sophomore album And The Wave Has Two Sides, out July 24th via Roll Call Records. The Carlos Lopez Estrada directed video was shot entirely on an iPhone 6, and features two lovers as they chase each other alongside a speeding train; crashing through buildings, jumping over cows and riding along on horses and motorcycles and even jet-packs to keep up.

May the 4th be with you.
Playlists are up! Check out this longer than usual collection of some great songs that popped online last month in April (via Soundcloud, Rdio and Spotify). Artists to watch: The Japanese House, Day Wave, White Shadows and Wales.
Perfect timing for a new song from ON AN ON, who have announced a name for their upcoming July 24th album release. And The Wave Has Two Sides follows their amazing debut Give In and so far is following in the right footsteps. Back in February, we heard the newest version of “Drifting“. Today we can add “It’s Not Over” to the list of new songs I’ll probably wear out once I get my hands on this new record.
Take a listen to “It’s Not Over”.

And, the playlists are up! Check out what rocked in February, via all your favourite platforms (Rdio, Soundcloud, Spotify and Youtube). This past month started off 2015 in a great way with some killer tunes from EXGF, The Wombats, The Tallest Man On Earth, Young Empires, Passion Pit and many more.
The great songs just keep pouring in this week. Here’s “Drifting” from Minneapolis trio ON AN ON off their upcoming sophomore album (out this summer). I’m not a stranger to this song though. Last year, I first heard this track from the Red Brick Songs “Red Album”; “Drifting” emerging as my favourite result of the publisher’s up-north songwriting retreat, and a song I’d later declare as one of the Best Songs Of 2014. Fact is, right now I’m already thinking about adding this version to my Best Songs Of 2015 list.
Can I even do that? Well, there’s no rules to writing this blog other than to make sure I’m telling you about great music. This song sure does qualify.
The song is “inspired by falling asleep behind the wheel and trying to forget unforgettable things” and was recorded (with the album) at the famous Sunset Sound in Los Angeles with legendary producer Joe Chiccarelli (Spoon, White Stripes, The Shins, My Morning Jacket). I like this recording, featuring a few more background elements and instruments, along with a new drumbeat that leads us out of the song. It’s still haunting hearing singer Nate Eiesland’s “Gotta get out” appeal (at 3:00).
