Exit Kid is the project of Years & Years keyboardist Emre Türkmen, who decided to switch synths for guitar, teaming up with drummer Dylan Bell.
“Exit Kid began in Albuquerque a year ago. I was on a gruelling US tour and it was very monotonous and uninspiring,” Emre explained.
“There’s a line in a Verve song that always stuck with me: “the airwaves are clean and there’s nobody singing to me now” and that’s how I felt. Plus, I had a lot of shit to deal with so I bought a cheap guitar and decided to get my hands dirty. I don’t think the guitar-bass-drums combo has ever been bettered.”
The guys released their debut, self-titled EP in June, played a few shows, and then we hauled them in for a Music Box session.
