Corbin Dooley, Nick Poortman, and Maya Coppola are Ondist.

With divergent backgrounds rooted in Arkansas, New Zealand, and New York, the trio connected in Los Angeles. Recording in Malibu, Dallas, Kansas City, and Las Vegas brought environmental influences to the center of the Ondist sound, which is united by its cinematic vision of hope.

What a balm for our troubling times: music that heals, as crafted by Ondist on No Coincidence. Maya Coppola’s gorgeous vocals wrapped in lovely sonics soothe the soul on “Under the Big Red Chair,” “Ocean” and “Beachcraft,” while dance beats get the heart pumping on electronica tracks like “Resound.” Reworkings of “You’re So Vain,” “Interstate Love Song,” and “No Rain” breathe new life into an eclectic mix of covers. The original “Solana,” with its message of longing for those we hold dear, may just be the song of the summer.
