#166: Exit Calm - The Future Isn't What It Used To Be



Exit Calm

The Future Isn't What It Used To Be

September 23 2013 (Club AC30)

7/10


From the first moments of opening track 'Rapture' it's clear that Barnsley's Exit Calm are a band with an exceptional amount of talent and an inordinate amount of ideas. New album The Future Isn't What It Used To Be is a record that defies any sort of categorisation. From the optimistic and anthemic exhibited in the likes of 'When They Rise' to the frenetic break-beat appreciating 'Albion' each track offers something different, something new. Rarely can a band merge this many influences and ideas in a record and still come across this coherent, this natural.
