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
