Review: Toronto-NYC based band ON’s singles – “Underdog” and “Soul Killer”-Release date August 17, 2022 via Indiestructable Records

ON

Poppy, rocking, Ramones-style post-punk, post-power pop is live and well! This time around it is ON a Toronto trio. 

All three members of ON are veterans of ’90s-2000s alternative rock bands, formerly rocking out with their respective bands ACID TEST, DANKO JONES and ROCKET SCIENCE. ‘Underdog’ and ‘Soul Killer’ are an apt introduction to their forthcoming album, that should be loaded with guitar-driven grunge / garage rock, exploring personal themes of the band members’ perseverance in a gradually decaying society and ruminations on their growth as musicians and as people.  

Guitarist STEVE FALL says it is “a document of friendship navigating explores in pain and hope, looking at the world with a collaborative effort to document what we see, witness, and feel through songwriting and chemistry as a band.” 

Based on these two songs the album is something to look forward to. 

The Band: Lucy Di Santo (vocals, bass), Dan Cornelius (drums), and Steve Fall (guitars).
