Right now at Paste Magazine you can sample the entire debut EP from New York City duo EXITMUSIC, out next week on Oct. 4 (Oct. 5 in the UK). The From Silence EP’s dark dream-pop shifts from haunting to hammering, ethereal to explosive — albeit like bombs lighting up the night sky just over the horizon. It’s a rich and confident thesis statement from a band that has been praised by Vogue, NPR’s All Songs Considered, UK’s The Guardian and New York Magazine. Head HERE to listen to Paste’s stream and hear why EXITMUSIC has received earnest comparisons to heavyweights of the form like Portishead, Sigur Ros and Bjork.
In October and November, EXITMUSIC will be on a US tour with sonic cousins Phantogram. Meanwhile, two very, very special New York shows: An Oct. 4 EP Release Show at The Mercury Lounge with Lonely Dear; and a Halloween show at The Music Hall of Williamsburg with The Black Angels and The Psychic Ills. Wowwy, right? See all upcoming EXITMUSIC dates HERE.
