Exitmusic Announces New Album, Title Track Available For Download

We’ve got some incredibly exciting news. Exitmusic has a brand new full-length and it’s out May 22nd. Titled Passage, it’s the much anticipated followup to their debut EP, From Silence. Earlier this morning, KEXP premiered the title track, saying “what defines Exitmusic is their epic songwriting style that is 100% evident in their new single ‘Passage.’”

Recorded at Rare Book Room in Brooklyn with mixer Nicholas Vernhes (Dirty Projectors, Deerhunter), Church and Palladino, along with the assistance of new bandmates drummer Dru Prentiss and engineer Nicholas X, built on the chilling, beautiful aesthetic they had created as a duo when recording at home. The result is a sound that is more powerful and more nuanced, covering broad oceans of emotional terrain.

Opener and title track “Passage” is like watching a great shifting of tides through rapid time-lapse photography, introducing new dynamics in one magnificent breath. It is a statement of intent that tears down the Victorian boudoir gauze found on previous efforts. The ghosts are still piercing the veil, but now they’re throwing chairs. The song begins gently, with candlelight piano plucks, distant explosions on the horizon, aching breaths and moans. But in moments, the oceans swell and lurch as it detonates into a shower of brilliant shrapnel.

Passage is a long time in the making, and certainly worth the wait. Listen and download the title track below.

Exitmusic kicks off their tour Tuesday, February 28th at Mercury Lounge in New York. See full list of dates HERE.
