The Non is a dynamic, experimental, instrumental rock band from Oklahoma City that engages audiences with intricate musicianship, high energy, and ethereal soundscapes. With no boundaries and a lot of talent, Mack (drums), Zach (guitar/piano), Tom (bass), and Wil (guitar) have been delivering high-energy, dynamic performances to fans for nearly four years. Drawing sonic cues from disparate influences such as Radiohead, Octopus Project and Grizzly Bear, The Non incorporates chaotic, dissonant guitars against sweeping, intricate melodies complemented with tight, syncopated grooves by drums and bass. John Estus of NewsOK describes The Non as "one of the state's top creative entities of any kind."
Following up the success of their debut album, "Paper City" (2007), The Non recently released their sophomore album "Tadaima" with two consecutive sold-out shows. Their new album is a compositional shape-shifter that merges loud and chaotic elements with soothingly transcendent motifs. EarsMadeReady described Tadaima's sound as "spacious and full, given to eruptive bursts of shimmering layers of washed out guitar lines." After selling out OKC Resound where they played with a 15-piece orchestra, The Non played to a fully packed Sooner Theater--over 550 people--as a headliner at this year's Norman Music Festival with a 25-piece orchestra. The uproar of fans unable to attend helped cause Oklahoma newspapers such as such Norman's OU Daily and Stillwater's O'Colly to call The Non "Most Likely To Succeed" and "Oklahoma's most important band," respectively. Most recently, the Oklahoma Gazette awarded The Non "Best Local Band" behind only The Flaming Lips.
The Non recently completed a summer long tour of the midwest and west coast in promotion their new record, "Tadaima" which is available on iTunes and Myspace.
