WATCH: Exitmusic’s New Video for “The Night”

Premiering on Pitchfork yesterday, Exitmusic’s new video for “The Night,” off their recently released Passage, is now available for your viewing pleasure. The video follows a lost-looking Aleksa through an eerie, suburban house. Director Will Joines tells us, “For me, when Aleksa mentioned that song was about finding a loop hole to cheat the the separation of physical form, I immediately got excited about showing someone consumed and transformed by something greater than them self. Setting the video in a very ordinary environment seemed the perfect way to underscore this bizarre conversion.” Watch above!

“It’s (Passage) audacious and ambitious, twisting lyrics about depravity and loneliness into shared anthems meant for overcoming both.” – Pitchfork

Exitmusic’s “Passage” Streaming in Full on NPR’s First Listen


Exitmusic’s Passage is set for release on Tuesday, May 22nd, but you can stream the album in its entirety now at NPR’s “First Listen.” During this year’s SXSW, Robin Hilton took notice of the husband-and-wife duo, who recently expanded their live lineup to include Nicholas Shelestak and Dru Prentiss. A champion for the group since, Hilton writes,“Simple, spare beats hold chaotic soundscapes together while delicate melodies tell troubled tales. The songs are gorgeous and gruesome, soaring and sad, glittering dreams and haunting nightmares…But even (or perhaps especially) in its bleakest moments, Passage is one the most memorable and absorbing records you’ll hear in 2012.

STREAM PASSAGE NOW.

The album is available for pre-order; find your copy HERE. You can also purchase “The Night,” off the forthcoming album, at iTunes.
