But with the band's studio time only a few weeks away and the other members now spread out across the country pursuing other endeavors, they would chart their own course and come out stronger for it. What emerged was ON AN ON.
While the melodies might clue one in to the trio's evolved sonic palate, it's through the Give In's themes that the group members' respective evolution becomes most apparent. Eiesland wrote the majority of the lyrics, in the process coming to terms with death and the traps that life springs upon us.
Whether letting his intuition guide him on "I Wanted To Say More" or owning up to life's inevitability on "All The Horses", there's a tempered calm to the thought-provoking imagery he espouses through his words. Estwing offered up his own lyrical seance on his lead vocal track "Cops," although the bassist says his message - that the police can be surprisingly corrupt - is more direct.
After smashing everything they knew to pieces, they pulled themselves together around 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. It is an affair that sizzles with electricity and calls one in with its unnerved openness.
