The Come On is the brainchild of songwriter Sam Barron and producer Brian Speaker (Jeffrey Lewis, The Fem Doms); an irreverent new wave rock concoction of overdriven Telecaster, vocal harmonies and sparse synth strokes. Their sound merges The Modern Lovers garage rock with a Devo geometry, and honors above all the spirit of T. Rex. In fact, it was after emerging from a T. Rex-induced coma, Sam began to write a new set of songs for the band he and Speaker had envisioned. In the fall of 2016 with drummer Lou Cozza (Darkwing, Looms) and singer/keyboardist Mimi Oz, Sam took the material on the road and after feeling the updraft of the response to the songs, Speaker recorded The Come On live off the floor at his SpeakerSonic Studios right after they returned to Brooklyn. Additional production by added by Charles Newman(Magnetic Fields, Motopony) and the result is the self-titled EP due out February 10th on Mother West, and another Southern Tour for the trio of Oz, Cozza and Barron.
