Only Only have emerged from the bedrock of the West Coast with the release of their debut EP ‘Placeholder’.

The Los Angeles quartet can only be found on Instagram and consists of Americans Emory Duncan and Taylor Devorsky,  Leonard Herron, of Tokyo, Japan, and Sasha Ludyashin, of Saint Petersburg, Russia. All met when their paths crossed together in Los Angeles.

Blending acoustic folk rock and vintage Britpop elements, Only Only serve up a colourful batch of high-octane energy and cool surf pop songs. They possess an infectious and dynamic rush of cutting-edge sound and energy.

Duncan (guitar, vocals) and Ludyashin (guitar, bass, production) balance the songwriting, while Herron (lead guitar, vocals) and Devorsky (drums, voice of reason) stylize the band’s attitude and character. As a collective, they bring over thirty years of combined vision and performance to the table.

Good

  • Shows off bands variety in style

Bad

  • Songs aren't meant to fit in one EP
