THIS WAY TO THE EGRESS – “END IS NIGH”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PREMIERE
Pennsylvania art-punk outfit This Way to the Egress gets downright introspective on their new album Retrospectiva! all the while forcing you to move your body to Balkan beats and burlesque bop. It’s a modern journey through Tom Waits-esque folk-punk junkyards, esoteric worlds of vaudevillian juke joints and underground big band Great Gatsby parties. The music of Egress is an indoctrination into secret worlds of underground art and performance. Their live shows are renowned as an immersive experience involving elaborate costumes, props, puppetry and dance, creating a respite and a meeting place for other avant garde bohemian types. Retrospectiva! catalogs their own odyssey into growing older, confronting the death of loved ones and navigating their own physical, metaphysical and spiritual paths forward. Today, Spill is premiering the band’s new single “End Is Nigh,” a shuffling cabaret-punk track about confronting your mortality head on, while recognizing the skeletons in your closet.
