Song premiere – “On Again, Off Again”

Music Blog Quick Before It Melts premiered a new track from “In the A.M. Wilds” today – “On Again, Off Again”, which you may remember from the band’s in-studio videos posted on Pledge Music.

According to Trevor, “The song was built with an old drum machine, a live performance and some phone software. Our favourite part was the vintage ‘Fun Machine’ keyboard which they have at Troublemakers Studio. Lots of 12-string guitar in the arrangement too!”
