ON AN ON are looking forward to the upcoming July 24th release of their new album And The Wave Has Two Sides on Roll Call Records. In anticipation the Minneapolis trio have debuted “Icon Love”, the latest track to be released from the record. The band will tour North America this summer and fall in support of the Joe Chiccarelli (Spoon, White Stripes, The Shins, My Morning Jacket) produced album. Stream “Icon Love”, view upcoming tour dates, and watch their music video for “It’s Not Over”, which was premiered on Mashable and chosen as Vimeo “Staff Pick” and one of Stereogum’s “5 Best Videos Of The Week” below.

ON AN ON have released the music video for the song “It’s Not Over”, from their forthcoming sophomore album And The Wave Has Two Sides. 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. The fun and dynamic video is the perfect compliment to the upbeat song. “Put this in the right hands,” wrote Stereogum of “It’s Not Over” last month, “and it’ll be dominating the radio for the rest of the year.” While Entertainment Weekly dared their readers to “Try not to dance to ON AN ON’s ‘It’s Not Over'”. ON AN ON will take to the road this summer and fall in support of their new album.

The Minneapolis trio recorded the follow up to their well received debut, Give In, at the famous Sunset Sound studios in Los Angeles with legendary producer Joe Chiccarelli (Spoon, White Stripes, The Shins, My Morning Jacket). When ON AN ON began work on their new album, they brought a new approach to their songwriting with them. “This is another first record for us in a way,” says keyboardist Alissa Ricci of And The Wave Has Two Sides. “This time we came into the studio as a band,” she says, alluding to their experience with their debut Give In, which was recorded only weeks after the three members had formed ON AN ON. “Give In, was us learning to think less and trust our instincts,” she continues, “what you hear on that record is a band beginning.”

If Give In was the result of a band exploring their sonic horizons, and letting go of control while they figured out who they wanted to be, And The Wave Has Two Sides is the moment of clarity they came to as a result of that initial soul searching journey. A year and a half playing shows in support of Give In provided ON AN ON with time to examine how they wanted to expand and grow sonically, resulting in more collaborative writing, and experimental live tracking.

ON AN ON is comprised of Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci, and Ryne Estwing.
