Exitmusic - From Silence
There is not a lot of information online about Brooklyn’s EXITMUSIC. I recently saw them open for Phantogram and instantly became hooked. The husband and wife duo, Devon Church and Aleska Palladino, released their first album The Decline in the West in 2008. If you have yet to hear about EXITMUSIC, their follow up EP, From Silence, was released in October and contains four hypnotizing songs will serve as an alluring introduction to this band.
The band performs live with drummer, Dru Prentiss, and Nicholas Shelestak as the band’s mixer. The album is emotional and dark. From Silence opens with “The Sea”. Palladino’s haunting voice repeats, “It’s the silent sea…” throughout most of the song, and introduces us to what is to come from this short EP. “The Modern Age” is one of the more memorable songs, and the “Ooh ooh, oh oh, on the run from the modern age”, line will be stuck in your head post listen.
“The Hours” seems to be a story about an ex and the ex being Los Angeles. Aleska Palladino plays Angela Darmody on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, which prompted their move from Los Angeles to New York. EXITMUSIC can easily be compared to Esben and the Witch. “The Silence” is a perfect example of this comparison.
Even though the album is short, it is captivating and impressive. From Silence will satisfy new and seasoned fans of EXITMUSIC.
