ONONO is a New Zealand psych pop band which started as a home recording project
for Jonathan Nott who writes, records, performs, and produces the music. ONONO
borrows from fellow Wellington acts Red Sky Blues, Sport Royal and Hans Pucket,
literally, reflected in the band’s line up as well as being influential in the writing and
production of the recordings. ONONO burst onto the scene late 2016 with the release
of Bad Posture – a seven track LP written, recorded and performed by Jonathan Nott
in his Melrose flat in Wellington.
Since forming the five-piece “supergroup” live band in early 2017, they have crafted
their live set into an emotional rollercoaster with euphoric peaks, hypnotic
dance-inducing grooves and visceral breakdowns. The intelligently written
psychedelic pop-songs are comprised of instantly familiar hooks, widely accessible
melodies and technical satisfaction for the musical nerd.
So far in 2017 the band has toured throughout the North Island playing several shows
in Auckland, Whanganui and homebase Wellington. They have shared the stage with
other New Zealand heavy-hitters including Mermaidens and Bespin as well as
headlining their own shows in Auckland and Wellington.
Jono spends half of the year touring with his cousins BROODS around the globe
playing festivals and headline tours. ONONO plan to release an EP late 2017 and
tour throughout the summer into 2018.
"Thanks to the record’s infectious hooks and swirling melodies, the album quickly captured fans around the country "
"The seven track album is a woozy spiral of fuzz-laden guitars and mellow vocals held together by Jono’s trademark understated yet deliciously groovy drumming "
