Exeter

BandRockAlternative

A space rock/indie 4-peice from Austin, TX, delivering power and ambient texture, Exeter creates at times, a wall of sound, and at others, blissful soundscapes. By blending these elements, Exeter achieves a unique, yet vaguely familiar aural experience.

Biography

Exeter is four years, 30 songs and a hundred
shows into its mission of leaving Earth
without ever leaving the ground.

The band teamed up with local producer and
engineer Kevin Butler at his Test Tube Audio,
to record their debut Intra Venus EP.
Recorded in less than a month, Intra Venus
was Exeter’s first foray into a new sound
which paid homage to several genres of music, most notably space rock and shoegaze. At first created as a tool to book more gigs, the production and strength of the six-song album led the band to opt for a full release.

Near the close of 2008, Exeter ushered a track onto a tribute compilation entitled The Nurse Who Loved Me to 90’s space rock pioneers, Failure, released by South Florida indie label, PopUp Records. The band returned to Test Tube Audio, producing a cover of “Smoking Umbrellas.” Later that year, the band contributed a track to 2009’s Exploding In Sound compilation by rabid music blogger/journalist Dan Goldin.

The band revisited familiar ground but found new territory when they returned to Test Tube Audio to begin working with Butler on Grey Noise, White Lies, the band’s first full-length release on Pop Up/Engineer Records. The album, an 11-track meditation on love, violence and everything in between, will be released August 25, 2009.
