EXITMUSIC

Sometimes, listening to Exitmusic, it's hard to tell exactly whether the goosebumps you're getting are from the parts that are chillingly beautiful and melodic or the ones that are aching and guttural. Or further, the ones that are creepily sparse and disembodied. The New York City duo -- Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church -- doesn't care when the chill runs down your spine, they just hope their music provokes some kind of primal feeling. Church explains, "It's like what Aleksa sings at the end of 'The Sea': 'And you turn your back to life... Oh, sorrow.' We want our music to confront people in a gentle but powerful way, to make them feel something."

WATCH: Exitmusic Perform on NPR’s Tiny Desk

Exitmusic stopped by NPR headquarters recently to take part in the Tiny Desk series. What occurred was yet another beautiful performance. Playing songs from their recently released album, Passage, Exitmusic demonstrates that regardless the setting, their live show is a powerful and moving force. Watch above!

The songs of Exitmusic are so romantically rich, they could envelop a cavernous hall. Luckily, the band didn’t defang that cinematic power and anguish in the intimate confines of the NPR Music offices. Here, Exitmusic plays a beautifully buzzing set, marked by vocal nuance and stirring melodies.” -Michael Katzif at NPR
