Listen to ON AN ON’s chilling cover of Björk’s “Unison”

    OnAnOn_Bjork

    Chicago/Minneapolis trio ON AN ON have shared their cover of “Unison”, the closing track on Björk’s 2001 album, Vespertine. Though decidedly more rock-based, the band’s rendition still manages to channel quite a bit of the original’s beautiful, enigmatic mystique. Here, the vocals — more so than the instruments — take rein of the ambiance and set a chilling tone, quivering and weaving themselves throughout the song like an amorphous cloud of smoke.

    This cover, as well as their take on Hot Chip’s “Boy From School”, will appear on a new, limited edition cassette tape. The release will be available on the group’s upcoming tour and digitally starting August 20th through Roll Call Records. Dates for the aforementioned tour are below.
