Boston's scrappy, self-produced Off & On are a fresh face for the quirky, emotive stylings of New England's underground scene. Though Off & On don't sonically compare to any of the obvious acts to emerge from Mass, Rhode Island, or Connecticut, something about the band's unique personality is clearly hinged to the Atlantic. The kind of record you'd expect to see nestled comfortably in a crate right after Lightning Bolt, and Piebald, but before of Self Defense Family.
The crew are definitely on again with their video for the single "AIKT" from the debut, Good Talk Vol. 1, below. O&O's Tim Landers explained to Fuse that the track is a great place to start for new followers because of where the band was in their evolution. "'AIKT' was the first step in getting deeper into our sound and musical progression," he elaborated. "When we wrote that song we felt creatively at our best. In the video, we tried to capture Off & On, and our personalities, in the realest form."
