Video Premiere Exclusive: Brooklyn’s The Exits Unveil Run

Having received support from Atwood Magazine, Pop Matters and having shared the stage with the likes of X Ambassadors and Future in previous outfits, Brooklyn rockers The Exits have brought fresh energy and attitude with the recent release of Run.

Rockshot Magazine can today exclusively share the accompanying video. The Band told RockShot that “This one’s all about the riff, really. People generally, find it hard to argue with. Even if rock and roll isn’t currently at its peak, a good riff never goes out of style. The drums complement it with a solid groove, and the vocals tell the story of a rocky relationship, which seems fitting.”

Taking their cues from rock legends from The Rolling Stones to Arctic Monkeys, The Exits don’t hesitate to infuse old school rock riffs with modern flair and this release is far heavier than their previous releases, Stranded, Gone, Press Repeat and Please Don’t Tell. The dreamy Pop Indie has been replaced with with killer riffs and pounding percussion.

This is a far edgier sound. If the single is an aural attack, then the video is a visual attack. With split frames and multiple images, there is more than a little flesh on show, mixed with some visuals that are designed to be unsettling.

With a dash of modern flair, Brooklyn indie rockers The Exits do their part to keep the spirit and attitude of New York City rock alive. While taking obligatory cues from the likes of the Velvet Underground and The Strokes, The Exits songwriting is as indebted to jazz standards, hip hop, and literature as it is to the rock and roll lineage from The Beatles to Nirvana.

The band are Jared Schneider (guitar/lead vocals), Ryan Calabrese (drums/vocals), and Tom Harrison (bass). Schneider and Calabrese met as students in college, where they played guitar and drums in a hip hop group, opening for the likes of Future and X Ambassadors at SXSW. After relocating to New York, they formed The Exits, adding New Zealand native Harrison to the mix after a late night out.

The Exits’ songwriting delivers tales of city life and romance through catchy melodies that occasionally bend your ear on their way to lodging themselves in your brain. Add to the mix a solid groove from the rhythm section, rock and roll guitars, and the occasional keys flourish, and you’ll have as good an idea of their sound as you could hope for without actually giving them a listen – which you might as well if you’ve made it this far.
This video will be on general release on 6th December.
