Action Item / I/Ø
Action Item has been touring for the last two years in support of its first EP, The Stronger the Love, an album that has sold more than 22,000 copies independently. In that time, these early 20-somethings have played in support of the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Boys Like Girls. The band had three singles in Radio Disney’s Top 30 Countdown, including “Learn To Fly,” a track produced by Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. Action Item's latest EP, Resolution, reached No. 9 on the Billboard Independent chart and #72 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Its fall headlining tour was a huge success with multiple sold-out shows all over the U.S.

Based out of Boston, Massachusetts, I/Ø has been playing together since the fall of 2012. Drawing on the influence of bands like Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, and Hammock, I/Ø finished its first instrumental full-length album in the summer of 2013. Based on open textures, nuanced melody, and a heavy artillery dynamic, the I/Ø sound allows the audience to form their own subjective aesthetic intention for the music, free from the confines of language and clarity. The songwriting process is organic, difficult to observe, and often impossible to define; it is similar to the ebb and flow of the emotional states that fuel the final product. I/Ø believes human experience can be too beautiful, grotesque, inspiring, abhorrent, heartwarming, and traumatic to put into words.
