The Exit:
By Mandana Beigi
Home For An Island (CD Some)

The above verses perfectly reflect the vibe and the soul of this album; it’s all about being in love and/or being alive. And in so many ways, Home For An Island vocalizes all the insecurities, fears, and heartaches that have filled the world in the past few years. It knows exactly how to critisize society and times at a very personal level. “It was a fucked-up year when we were writing it. I was 21, living on my own for the first time and in New York City,” says Jeff DaRosa (Bass/Vocals). “I was sitting in my room wondering what the hell is going on in this world. I would hide in my room and play the guitar on my four-track and not talk to anybody.” Jeff DaRosa and Ben Brewer (Guitar/Vocals) are the songwriting duo of band and while DaRosa’s style is more grounded in introspection, Brewer’s work is bold and spiky, and together they creative the yin-yang of a solid rock band.

Although The Exit released their debut album, New Beat, in 2001, this is really the beginning of their journey as mature musicians who understand the world and know how to reflect it through music. “Soldier” is the tale of a life during war and a soulful rock ballad while “Back to The Rebels” and “Push” are more upbeat. Traveling through punk, rock, minor-key pop melodies and even reggae, you’ll never get comfortable in one particular mood listening to this album. The catchy guitar hooks, the multiple choruses, and the built-up climax of the songs make the perfect recipe for arena rock and it will be interesting to see what becomes of these guys in a few years. After all, they have come a long way from a high school class project to real rockers in only five years!
