Hailing from Huntington, West Virginia, the six-piece band Ona makes pure-blooded American rock and roll. Set to release their debut LP, American Fiction, via Twin Cousins Records on 25 September, “Rocks in the Basement”, the album’s lead single, picks up the path forged by The Other Side of June, the band’s 2014 two-song cassette. Named after an unincorporated West Virginia town best known for its racetrack and airfield, Ona conveys the insatiable urge to discover the larger world that resides along the east-west running Route 60.
Having opened for the likes of Jessica Lee Mayfield, Chuck Prophet and the Buffalo Killers, Ona will play select dates in advance of the release of American Fiction. Dates follow.
