recently, i had the pleasure of stumbling onto a lovely new single by talent EXES. the single is called ‘twentythousand’ and debuted in march.
once the sun comes out, i tend to pull towards soft/synthy/electronic sounds. my spotify is clad with indie playlists and alternative soft rock vibes with acoustic spatterings here and there. EXES fits that bill, and exceeds all expectation.
for starters, EXES’ whimsical sound completely enamors me. upon first listening to ‘twentythousand’, i was on the edge of my seat. with a gentle, building intro that establishes an ominous vibe, her voice breaks through and is complete bliss. you can truly get lost in the way she sounds. the apparent, but minimal, use of instrumentals makes the lyrics feel raw and the song feel powerful despite the sweet vocals.
in addition, EXES’ instagram is clad with lovely images that are imaginative and creative. her media mirrors her musical talent, so aside from being a great vocalist she has an eye for intriguing imagery. her sense of style reminds me of something out of alice and wonderland which is utterly reminiscent of her genre and completely unique. i’m a sucker for a kickass aesthetic, so i was extra psyched!
EXES has put out a few other epic tracks on her soundcloud, and they mirror the same beautiful strengths that the newest single has. ‘Grey’ and ’18’ are also favorites. if you are looking to get some good vibes going for the spring time, hop on your spotify and check her out. i personally am extremely excited to see what she comes out with in the future.
follow EXES on the social media’s below and stay up to date on what she’s doing and any musical goodness coming out of her base. spin it!
