TOLEDO – “On My Own”


“On My Own” is a slice of twangy, ascending beauty from Boston-based act TOLEDO, formed by longtime friends Jordan Dunn-Pilz and Daniel Alvarez de Toledo. The Boston-based project impresses mightily on this new track, beginning with rainy-day guitar twangs that tout a sparse beauty. The “I keep it ready for you just in case,” hook – pulsating like a heartbeat – does well to tease and lead into the track’s most memorable section, the final minute-and-a-half — where brisk guitar-work intermingles with the preceding jangle-forward beauty and various serene vocal adornments. “On My Own” is a surefire winner from TOLEDO.
