Looking for some new music to listen to? Then On Top is the band for you.
The band composed of Tiffin University students Dominic Giovanni and Jazz Hannah has only been on the scene for a year now, but it is already drumming up a following among the student body, including this journalist. The band started randomly, said both band members.
“It just happened,” Giovanni said. “It needed to. So it did.”
The sound of their band is all over the place. “Anything and everything, all jammed into one sound,” Hannah said. “Like a clown car jammed packed with musical clowns from another dimension.”
The band released its debut EP and both members have had a “grand time thus far” with a ton of support to back it. Hannah “would recommend it to anyone under the stars.”
When asked about what the band’s symbol means, Giovanni said that the translation has been lost over time: “The more you look at it, the more powerful you feel. I think it connects directly to the soul. It's primal and tears into your basic emotions.”
Hannah said, “It came to us in a dream one night… Yes, Dom and I have the same dreams some nights.”
When asked about their upcoming projects, they said that right now, “we are working on getting our gear ready to play a few gigs around Ohio and Michigan. We're also always recording new demos (check our SoundCloud), and making plans to begin recording another album of sorts.”
