“There is something to be said for finding pleasure in melancholy. Brooklyn indie-pop band Exnations embodies this surprisingly gratifying feeling in their music, creating stirring pieces that exemplify what they like to call "sad pop."

- EARMILK

“The Brooklyn outfit’s sound is certainly synth-pop, but not the sugary sweet variety. Instead it finds a sweet spot between said upbeat electronic sound and the brooding atmosphere of the Drive soundtrack”

- ALL THINGS GO

"The EP is filled with moments that spark optimism inside and while it comes with its demons, it guarantees that we’re always going to end up dancing in the rain after all."

- SOUNDS GOOD

ABOUT

EXNATIONS are an indie pop band based out of Brooklyn, NY; comprised of Sal Mastrocola, Taylor Hughes, and John O'Neill. Although self-defined as a 'sad' band, their color palette remains neon, penning compositions that steadily rise from somber lows of deep purple towards anthemic highs of vibrant pink and blue. 

The band’s debut release, Tiny Sound In The Dark, is a more-than-promising effort, laced with sparkle and anticipation. The group's knack for memorable hooks and danceable rhythms are clear, but what's even more compelling about EXNATIONS is the anthemic sense of empowerment the trio produces on their first effort.

Hazy and dream-like, yet bursting with passion and energy, EXNATIONS is a fitting metaphor for the world in 2019. Yea it's sad, but we're still dancing.
