You May Like This: Exiles



Exilesconfirmed for Hard Working Class Heroes

What you may need to know.

01. Hop into your red Ferrari with your girl, and cruise into an unending neon night with Exiles‘ super-polished synth-pop reverie.

02. Hailing from Carlow/Kilkenny, the trio takes direct influence from the full spectrum of eighties pop culture, from Hall & Oates, to the Lethal Weapon II soundtrack.

03. Streaming above is the outfit’s debut single, Red Lights, available now, and the leadoff track for their debut E.P. of the same name.

04. Appearing live at Hard Working Class Heroes fest, October 6-8, in Dublin. For more info, go here.

Verdict: Pristine pop from the South-East, via LA in the ’80s. Grin-inducing stuff.

    Eh Kavinsky knock off artwork, Lazerhawk knock off song title and MGMT knock off riff……….. Not good.

      Beat me to it. I’d say Kavinsky is onto his 80’s lawyers

      Kinda think even the lads behind Kung Fury might be picking up the phone

        2009 is calling it wants its aesthetic back….. Le Galaxie are bad enough for ripping off synthwave artists we don’t need another Irish copy and paste job……
