EXES is the project of Venice Beach denizens Allie McDonald and Mike Derenzo who claim to have chosen their moniker since they only write songs about their exes. The coed duo’s latest single, “Like You,” is leaked off their forthcoming debut EP and is a trip-pop dreamscape built on trap beats, edgy effects, and a very lush voice. Just close your eyes and sway.
“Tell me if you miss me cause I’m going fucking crazy.”
EXES will perform on August 16th at Dirty Laundry.
