New Song "Drifting" by ON AN ON (Album Due This Summer)

The hushed sound of "Drifting" recently caught my ear, with a simple intro of acoustic guitar presenting the singer as story teller, while another sonic underpinning of foreboding builds to an emotional pitch. It's a new tune from Minneapolis indie rock trio ON AN ON (Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci and Ryne Estwing) from an upcoming second album due this summer via Roll Call Records, And The Wave Has Two Sides.  This new collection is produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who has worked with the likes of Spoon, The Shins and My Morning Jacket.

The band is just wrapping up a tour with Big Data and Chappo, with the last date in Iowa this weekend. They describe the song as being "inspired by falling asleep behind the wheel and trying to forget unforgettable things."  This dreamlike state is depicted eerily in the black and white video for "Drifting," directed by Kyle Gibby and Rick Rush.
