News: New York duo Exitmusic will release debut album “Passage”
New York husband and wife duo Exitmusic will release their debut album ‘Passage’ this Friday 18th May on Secretly Canadian through Inertia.
The album is built on a foundation of rhythmic electronics and synthesizers and the duo currently perform as a four piece, with drummer Dru Prentiss and electronic musician Nicholas Shelestak.
Before forming Exitmusic with Church, Palladino had already caught a taste of the lime light, appearing in major television programs such as Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos and Law & Order.
Church is quick to admit that the band obtained an unusual dynamic to begin with. She explains: “I was listening to things that had elements sonically of what we’re doing now. Radiohead’s Kid A, that second Sigur Ros album, Godspeed You Black Emperor, and Warp Records electronic stuff. But all I had to work with at the time was an acoustic guitar. Meanwhile, Aleksa was recording all these really interesting, odd arrangements on her four-track that would be about a minute long and only have one movement in them, and it sounded more like what I was into than what I was doing.”
