Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church had a chance meeting on a train in Canada when they were merely 18 years of age. Their fortuitous meet precipitated an eventual marriage and sparked the genesis of yet another creative relationship known as “Exitmusic.”
This now Brooklyn-based duo’s full LP, Passage, is an impressive set of dark-tinged-dream-pop which features stark but emotionally compelling songs. With dense layer arrangements, rumbling compromises, washed-out guitars, stately pianos, martial-like rhythms and lovelorn lyrics all sung by Aleksa Palladino’s haunting vocals, Passage is one endearing album with unforgettable peaks.
Can’t wait to see what more these guys have got to offer.
