There’s a buzz around the imminent release of Full Moon, Heavy Light based on 2016’s American Fiction, the debut album from West Virginia indie-rock quintet Ona, named for a small town near their Huntington base. On Fiction the band sautéed their power-pop tendencies in edgy country-rock and doused them in world-weariness, irony, and pedal steel. The new one ambles rather than rocks, often relying on languid grooves, sighing synths, weepy guitars. and wistful reveries. The vibe is warm and breezy, melodic hooks lingering in sepia tones, as exemplified by leadoff tune “Summer Candy.” Juniper Douglas opens.
