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 Spooky, Romantic Video for “The Hours”

EXITMUSIC’s Stereogum-premiered, Will Joines-directed video for “The Hours,” a song from their forthcoming From Silence EP, is a perfect primer for the band’s sound. It’s both ghostly and powerful; gorgeous and foreboding. The song itself leans toward the powerful and anthemic side of that sound, as it’s glacial, ethereal post-rock builds and builds, a thousand cosmic clocks filling every gap.

And as Stereogum said regarding the video: “EXITMUSIC’s new dreamscape of a music video, ‘The Hours,’ has all sorts of spooky, romantic shit that Northrup Frye would be hyped about. Bleary, stark visions, twins, cascading smoke, spectral textures that gives the slow burn of a song a fitting visual counterpoint.”

Meanwhile, the band has a handful of live dates coming up, which you can see HERE.
