Exitmusic: A Dark, Brooding Love SongWFUV On-Air: Music Discovery Starts Here

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.
