Exclusive Premiere: Off and On, ‘No Friends’
On May 12, Off & On will celebrate the release of their brand-new EP, Good Talk Vol. 2, via intheclouds Records. Having only been around for a little more than a year, it didn't take long for the New England outfit to follow-up the first volume of Good Talk with four new tracks, each one meticulously crafted and undeniably catchy. Today (April 21), Diffuser is beyond thrilled to premiere the second track from the upcoming EP, "No Friends" -- take it for a spin in the audio player below.
"We had already recorded the other songs on Good Talk Vol. 2 and were planning on just three songs," vocalist Rocio Del Mar Valles explains. "Then we did a rough demo of this song, and none of us could stop listening to it. I remember saying to Tim [Landers, guitarist/vocalist], 'Before we think too much about it, this is my favorite song right now and I think it needs to be on this EP.'"
She goes on, "Our first single off Good Talk Vol.2, 'AIKT,' was the first step in getting deeper into our musical progression, and 'No Friends' is our most recent endeavor in diving further into what our possibilities are."
Good Talk Vol. 2 was produced by Landers in a "small, efficient and comfortable studio setup in his home," and clearly shows the band's maturation in a short amount of time. In support of the new EP, Off & On will hit the road starting in Cambridge, Mass., in just a couple of days (get the full itinerary below).
You can pre-order your copy of Vol. 2 at this location; for vinyl enthusiasts, you'll love how Off & On are packaging the new EP. Side A of the 12" record features Vol. 2's four new tracks and plays in reverse, from the center label to the edge. Side B includes Vol. 1 and plays standard, from the edge to the center.
