Spin "A must-hear artist"
LA Music Blog
"They sound like hippies who have taken over a city, hog-tied any uptight citizens, and painted all the yucky grey/brown buildings in acrylic colors and neon war paint."
Jambase "Their sound sits along the same horizon line as Yeasayer and Akron/Family, but unlike these peers they possess a warm, imaginative use of horns and a lead singer, Kalmia Traver, whose tantalizing
pipes soar somewhere between Dionne Warwick, Tina Weymouth and Portishead's Beth Gibbons – a siren tug so potent you'd drink her bath water just to get a taste."
SF Weekly "What it sounds like when eight different freak flags fly in perfect unison."
Reptar are a music band from Athens, Georgia. Made of Andrew McFarland, Ryan Engelberger, William Kennedy and Graham Patrick Ulicny who all lovingly recorded their debut EP Oblangle Fizz Y'all (Vagrant Records) in early 2011. They also performed at the 2011 Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Governor's Ball music festivals. When I look to my left and right I see my friends. My friends on drums, my friends on bass, my friends synthesize organic music, my friends play guitars all just to put into sound our every-days and our really wannas and our never gonnas. Nasty trouble awaits those who embark on journeys without sonic pleasures. Reptar wants to realize this potential in a brighter context, locked into a holy beat and locked in a sexy romantic dance closet. Really want to release that anxious stuff? Earth flowers? Want to feel that good kind of nasty and evoke the green pastures of some crazy reality? Let's try.

The sound marks a new direction for ON AN ON's three members - Nate
Eiesland, Alissa Ricci and Ryne Estwing - who had been performing together for the last few years with the indie group *Scattered Trees*. It was only this past March during the annual SXSW festival that they decided to follow their instincts and change course, with conservative compromises being a thing of the past.
acclaimed producer *Dave Newfeld* (Broken Social Scene). With a knack for genre-melding, and a boundary-pushing mindset, Newfeld would prove to be the perfect match for the trio's new caution-less approach: synthesizers, scattershot electro beats and ambient ear candy would give guitars, bass and drums a newfound ghostly sheen. The end result was *Give In*, ON AN ON's ten-track debut album - a dream-washed textural journey armed with a biting perspective on life, love and the commonality of loss.
