Exit was born in the mid-1990s out of Austin, Texas’ Ben Londa’s love of electronic music, particularly the ambient soundscapes of Global Communication and early Projekt Records releases. Meshing electronics with guitars, Londa began self-releasing albums at rapid speed. 2005′s The Way Out Is Through showed Londa’s maturity as a songwriter, garnering praise from publications all around the world. Merging acoustic guitars and electronics with elements of new wave and shoegaze, The Way Out Is Through has been described as “one of the best, most well-crafted albums of the year” by CD Baby and “a very important release and an artist to pay attention to” by Dark Austin.
2013 will bring Exit’s next release, The Blind Alley, further showcasing the poignant lyricism and achingly beautiful music that made The Way Out Is Through such a success. The Blind Alley is the most cohesive and mature recording from Exit to date, and features guest appearances from Michael Plaster of Soul Whirling Somewhere (Projekt Records), Lisa Cuthbert (The Sisters Of Mercy), and Avi Ghosh (Art Versus Industry).
Exit performed at the Convergence 14 Festival in Tampa, Florida in 2008 and was an official South By Southwest showcasing artist in 2012. Notable acts that Exit has performed with include The Legendary Pink Dots, Wayne Hussey (of The Mission UK/The Sisters of Mercy), Miles Hunt (of The Wonderstuff), VAST, My Morning Jacket, Thanatos, Iris, CTRL and many, many others.
