Quirky Psych Pop from ONWE

Still, you put absurdities to the side, and you have this great piece of pop music that’s being built by the three piece.  Guitars curl in and out of the tune, keyboard spikes burst in and melody swirls around the “goo goo ga ga love” chorus.  This is definitely something that piques are interest as we look forward to an official release from the band in early 2015.
