onYou have been stirring around the Chicago scene for a multitude of years now. The band has spent hundreds of hours laboring away in their underground layer perfecting their noxious brew. During that time they have appeared on the surface briefly to litmus test the toxicity through heavily dosed live performances. Seemly as rare as a hen’s tooth, those lucky enough to experience onYou first hand, walk away shrouded in sweat and subsequently drippy nightmares. These boy’s don’t mess around, they stoke the flames of some seriously fucked up psychosis and hypnogogia.
We have been drinking onYou’s brew for years, telling everyone in the aftermath how necessary the experience is. Having dropped six releases for Captcha Records, Ultimum Photon A Sole is the card they’ve held close to their chest for the last year, perfecting it week after week. The result is a very heady ethereal and tribal record that veers to the darkside with mantric vocals, heavy guitar shredding and dual drumming. Skillfully traversing a massive ascent to the peak of the aside, summiting this album features onYou at the top of their game.
Heads will tremble when this batch of psych gets mainlined. Freaks jonesing for bands like Les Rallizes Dénudés and CAN will find close company in onYou. The group consists of Stan Wood, Chris Cowgill, Michael Neuhaus, Bobby Lewis and Mikey Ricketts.
The stunning NSFW album imagery was shot by the “Real” Ben Pegram. The album will be available on digital download, 160 gram cyan/blue combo vinyl and the first 100 copies come with a handmade cyanotype print.
