Self-proclaimed sad-pop act EXNATIONS is thrilled to announce their brand new EP, Pink Haze. Out June 28th, 2019, Pink Haze follows the band’s highly successful single, “Knife,” streaming now on Spotify. The band will be supporting the release with a summer tour, kicking off July 6th in Cincinnati. The run will close out with a hometown album release show at Brooklyn’s Gold Sounds on July 13th.
EXNATIONS are an indie pop band 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.
Their forthcoming sophomore EP, Pink Haze, deals from the warm halcyon embrace of nostalgia. Beautiful and all-enveloping, it’s so easy to get lost in. But over the course of the record, the band arrives at the conclusion that the haze of nostalgia best serves us when we find a way through it. When we can look at the past honestly and critically, we’ve got our best shot at true growth and progression.
Hazy and dream-like, yet bursting with passion and energy, EXNATIONS is a fitting metaphor for the world in 2019. It’s sad, but we’re still dancing.
EXNATIONS will release their new EP Pink Haze on June 28th, 2019. Pre-orders are available now at www.exnations.com.
