Exitmusic: A Dark, Brooding Love Song

September 15, 2012Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church have a profound partnership: The two first met on a transcontinental train, and over the course of a pair of albums have created an artistic identity that's beautifully beguiling and darkly unsettling. Watch Exitmusic perform "The City," from this year's Passage.

Exitmusic's Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church have forged a profound partnership: The couple came together in a romantic, cinematic way, meeting on a transcontinental train. Then, over the course of two albums — Passage came out earlier this year — they've created an artistic identity that's beautifully beguiling and darkly unsettling.

The band — which also includes drummer Dru Prentiss and Nicholas Shelestak on assorted electronics — recently journeyed to the Bronx (not by train) for a live session in WFUV's Studio A. Hear "The City" on this page.
