…welcome home, ON Gator
by Walter Price
Rocknroll collective ON returns with another criúnchy post-grunge single from their phenomenal 2022 self-titled LP. “Gator” is a cautionary tale of sorts, a be careful of what you wish for type scenario, and from what I’ve been able to decode, this is a track about the dangers within your safety zone.
“Gator” appears to have a double meaning. A) those folks who can afford to segregate themselves in private communities and B) the ferocious beasts that lurk in the waters of these safe posh wards. The track paints quite a societal critique. But, if you’ve been following this LP’s progression, you’re probably not too surprised that this band knows how to craft weighty lyrics backed by their evergreen alt-rock punch. And this single is no exception.
You can stream “Gator” as well as the full LP, here at the GTC.
