The Exquisites Pack a Heartfelt Punch in ‘Grow Away’
The Exquisites are a punk band out of Seattle that fall in that perfect cross-section of both fun and real. In just a few short years, they've made their presence known, touring with buds like Joyce Manor and Des Ark, carving out their own slice of enjoyable punk. They're adding to the great legacy of Bay Area bastion Asian Man with the upcoming Home, their second on the storied label. Today, they're premiering "Grow Away," a tightly packed two-minute punch to the gut. It feels like the sonic equivalent to driving through an old neighborhood, nostalgia and undertones of sadness sinking into your skin. Singer Jason Clackley yells with purpose over the poppy chords, landing upon a feeling that'll hit you square in the gut. It's a nice piece of a record full of beats that will make themselves felt for time to come.
You can pre-order the band's upcoming LP Home from Asian Man before it's out October 14.
