Indie-Pop Duos Exes & Jome Collaborative EP NOTHING'S OUT TO GET YOU Out Today

Today, bicoastal indie-pop duo EXES and LA-based synthpop duo JOMEofficially released their collaborative EP Nothing's Out To Get You. The album includes powerful singles "Stay Still," an ode to feelings surrounding love, loss and tragedy, and "One Day," which was featured on a number of Spotify's New Music Friday playlists.

EXES is composed of Brooklyn-based Allie McDonald and Venice beach-based producer Mike Derenzo, while JOME is made up of LA-based songwriterJesse Epstein and New Orleans-based writer and producer Christoph Andersson. The four writers and producers retreated to Marin County in Northern California in October 2018 to write a collection of meaningful songs together, documenting the entire trip by taking polaroids. This collaboration of artists has resulted in a diary-like, happy-sad kind of musical moment - all created while in their living room-turned-studio, hanging with Mike's dog Bella. While the lyrics hint at dark themes of death and loss, the production highlights an element of hope with a soaring and cinematic instrumental. Their previous collaboration resulted in the 2017 single "Better Better" which garnered over 500,000 streams across platforms.

EXES create a detail-oriented sort of indie pop driven by post-youth nostalgia and the people of their past; equal parts affectionate and vulnerable in production, lyrics, and melody. EXES' critically acclaimed 2016 debut EP The Art of Saying Goodbye garnered over 25 million streams across platforms and was covered by the likes of i-D, USA Today, Galore, and more. EXES most recent EP, Before You Go, has received praise from the likes of Billboard, Refinery29, and BlackBook, among many others, and their songs have been featured on ABC's drama Quantico, Netflix's re-boot of the fan favoriteDegrassi, and the UK's BAFTA winning Made In Chelsea. They've had multiple singles chart on Hype Machine's Top 10 and have been featured on Taylor Swift's "Songs Taylor Loves," along with being featured on Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday, Indie Pop, and Chill Vibes. Over the course of their career, they've amassed over 45 million Spotify streams and the band has opened for the likes of Børns and Ella Vos. JOME split their time between LA and NOLA, creating their unique brand of heartbreaking yet optimistic indie pop, and they've been featured in numerous television shows while amassing over 20 million streams on their first album, Tunnels.
