Album: From Silence EP
Release Date: 3/10/2011
A modern and icily beautiful introduction to the NYC duo
Acting against the norm for boyfriend and girlfriend duos who settle for being mediocre pop throwbacks (Cults, Summer Camp), NYC husband and wife duo Exitmusic's "From Silence" is an exercise in glacial modernity, but one that is quite brilliant at that. Opener "The Sea" is fulll cavernous and dense Esben & the Witch- esque vibes, whilst "The Modern Age" sounds like Beach House meeting Zola Jesus on the moon. It's on the closer though "The Silence", a haunting and spectral beauty that sounds like Portishead at their most expansive and sparse that the band really nail their sound.
