The Who: ExSage (Los Angeles, CA)
The What: There’s something insidious and creepy as f*ck going on here but Kate Clover and Tim Foley of newly constituted ExSage (formerly Cobalt Cranes) don’t seem fazed by it at all. From their debut EP, Out of the Blue (released on September 30th, produced by the illustrious Alain Johannes), comes “Tripwire” and its visual gore-tale of a highly questionable nature. But sonically, the ex-couple delve into the shadowy rawness of desert rock (which is most apropos since the EP was written in Joshua Tree, CA) and that sound – along with this video – are elemental disturbances. So now we suggest that you submit to the noir side with ExSage.
