Aan prove that music has the ability to be pure, unadulterated fun; no more is this evident than in the fantastically frantic 'Mystery Life'. The Portland quartet's music is full of energy and raw melodies, which, as it turns out, might just be the perfect formula for brilliant indie-rock. Their delightfully off-kilter b-side 'Spiritual Provisions' is also well worth checking out.

If you're lucky enough to live on the pacific North-West then the band may be visiting your town this week (details here). For everyone else you can rest in the fact that Aan are set to release their 7″ record on February 5th via Cool Summer Records.
