NYC-based duo Exitmusic will play Gabe’s on Saturday, April 6. The group’s songs of lost romance and haunting loneliness hit upon common themes, but singer Aleksa Palladino’s wavering vocals build tension and longing in a way that feels neither forced nor melodramatic. Together, the two musicians (Aleska Palladino and Devon Church) feature a strong theatrical style full of restrained guitar and subtle keyboard lines.

Their most recent effort, Passage, has received favorable reviews from critics for its ability to convey genuine emotion while avoiding the all-too familiar indie-rock trap of angst-driven dramatization.

Speaking on behalf of the album’s authentic feel, Pitchfork‘s Grayson Currin said, “More than a cash-in or credibility play, Passage simply pulls several familiar objects into one detailed picture, a predictably good look from a pair whose script seems every bit as written as much as lived.”
