Today’s Indie: Ghosts / ON AN ON
’cause I was on the verge to scream when you wouldn’t scream about anything’
This is the kind of music that settles into your bones: lush, sprawling, haunting… built with intricate pieces you want to pull apart and put back together again. The Chicago indie pop quintet Scattered Trees have scattered, leaving Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci, and Ryne Estwin to start anew as ON AN ON. With vocals reminiscent of Pete Yorn and the ethereal waves of Beach House, I am bewitched by the trio’s debut track.
Ghosts is off of ON AN ON’s January 2013 album release, Give In, one they promise to be “a dream-washed textural journey armed with a biting perspective on life, love and the commonality of loss.” After only a single listen, my attention and ears are firmly in their grasp. #indie/tory
