Melancholic grandeur...

If you look closely, there's a beauty to melancholy. An acknowledgement that even though this world might not be perfect, it remains incredibly beautiful.

Exitmusic seem to realise this. Signed to Secretly Canadian, the duo's music has a sense of the Gothic about it which recalls the recent British based diversions of Esben & The Witch.

Thinking sweeping guitar lines, arching vocals... the musical equivalent of mist swooping down across forgotten valleys.

Three elements which fuse together in the video for 'Passage'. Set to gain a single release on April 23rd, you can watch the video below.
