Onesie plays the kind of smart, hooky guitar pop that has occasionally been filed under the endangered species list in the County of Kings. With one foot firmly planted in the brit pop and indie songwriting traditions of the 80's and 90s, and another in the manic yowl of American punk and hardcore, the band deals in the currency of anthems written on the voyage towards modern adulthood; eyes staring straight into the abyss of an uncertain future.

The project started as a batch of home recorded guitar pop ditties by songwriter Ben Haberland, a survivor of various NY based rock groups, amongst other things. As part time collaborator in several side projects, Ben had the luxury of choosing some great warriors to bring into the fold. Matt Beckemeyer tickles the synth/guitar whilst offering angelic harmonies. Zach Fanelli drops those walking finger picked bass lines that make you go hmmmmm. Who's that dude behind them? It's Finish transplant Tommi Fosstrom beating the drums in a manner that justifies the bounty of sweet tats located on his chest.

After packing out NYC venues such as Grand Victory, The Gutter, Subculture, Trash Bar, Glasslands, Matchless, The West, and Cake Shop, the group gathered to record their debut album. Recorded and mixed at Mollusk Studio and mastered by Josh Bonati, Best Practices features a wide range of sonic fun. From the lush telecaster sparkle of "Ballad Of The Boomerang", to the Fleetwood Mac meets Thin Lizzy stomp of "Husbands In Finance", to the crooning 90's crunch pop of "Karaoke Killers", Onesie redefines slacker rock as a high octane raised middle finger to the mundane; an utterly unironic dedication to the guitar rock dream, delivered from the guts of four pasty white dudes who simply won't let it go.
