2003 – present (13 years)
Washington, D.C., United States
Exit Clov is a five-piece indie rock band from Washington, DC, described as everything from "darkly melodic acid-pop" to "kaleidoscopic pop noir." With the punk ethos of Blondie, the political edge of Metric, the pure pop sensibilities of indie darlings Stars, and the playfulness of Shonen Knife, the band has a broad appeal that transcends ordinary music genres. Since its conception in 2003, Exit Clov has established a trademark sound with beautiful harmonies sung over infectious synth, violin, guitar, bass and drums. While the band's sound is golden to the ear, they are consistently raw and fresh beyond traditional rock 'n' roll standards. Exit Clov have to their credit two self-produced EPs (2004 Starfish, 2005 Saskwatch), The Jolly Roget Sessions (2006) – on which they enlisted the help of Roger Greenawalt (No Doubt, Ben Kweller, Iggy Pop, White Stripes) – and Respond Respond, an EP that was released in October 2006.
