I played Exitmusic‘s “The Sea” on my KSVR radio show a few weeks back. I found the music to be somewhere between the haunting melodies of Beach House and the hushed whispers of Still Corners. The band consists of New York duo Aleksa Palladino and Devon Church. And if Palladino looks familiar, it’s because she also plays a character in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
“The Sea” was given video treatment and it comes off just as eerie as the music this band creates. The footage is a mishmash of old and new video clips, pieced together artfully and chillingly. The song can be found on the band’s new EP From Silence, out now on Secretly Canadian.
