Judging by Give In, the forthcoming debut album from new Minneapolis band On an On, a crisis can lead to great things. Made up of three members of the band Scattered Trees, the group formed sort of accidentally, when the three—Nate Eiesland, Alissa Ricci, and Ryne Estwing—decided to carry on after that band fell to pieces. Using leftover studio time that was already booked, the trio worked with Broken Social Scene producer Dave Newfeld and reinvented themselves on the fly as a more or less entirely new band. None of it would matter if Give In weren't the beautiful record that it is. Boasting songs that alternately tremble in delicacy and explode with bombast, it's melodramatic pop, rendered in smart and wholly appealing colors. NED LANNAMANN
