Sad yet danceable guitar-flecked synth pop. “A numbing exploration of imminent peril…
[EXNATIONS] bends the emotions like a ray of light bolting through a prism.”
- Jason Scott (Billboard + Popdust)
EXNATIONS are an indie pop band based out of Brooklyn, NY; comprised of Sal Mastrocola, Taylor Hughes, and John O'Neill. The group combines two obviously opposite emotions in their music, and mesh them together to create a relatable and energetic sound. Although self-defined as a 'sad' band, their color palette remains neon, splashing hues of pink and aqua throughout their graphics, representing the dance-able side to their music - droning with juxtaposition. Dream-like, hazy & synthy; "Tiny Sound In The Dark" is a more-than-promising debut release, laced with sparkle and anticipation. The elements of pop music are clear, but what's even more fascinating about EXNATIONS is the anthemic sense of empowerment the trio produces on their first effort.
In support of the band’s debut release EXNATIONS ventured on a four state mini tour sponsored by Members Only and idobi radio’s Spinning Thoughts. EXNATIONS sound is a perfect time capsule for 2018: it’s sad, but we’re still dancing.
