Exray's slips through the genre cracks and past the time bandits to deliver an eclectic new voice. Jon Bernson and Michael Falsetto-Mapp specialize in lo-fi electronic pop made with precarious beats, short circuited melodies and voice mail vocals. In their short history as a band, Exray's has performed with an eclectic list of pop innovators: Toro Y Moi, tUnE-yArDs, The Soft Moon, Nite Jewel, Thao Nguyen, Rainbow Arabia, Adventure, Maus Haus, Tim Cohen, The Sandwitches, Cloud Nothings, John Vanderslice and Pictureplane.
The band's debut single was released on Secret Seven's 'In a Cloud' compilation, which features many of San Francisco's finest, including The Fresh & Onlys, Thee Oh Sees, Sonny and the Sunsets, Kelley Stoltz and The Sandwitches. The duo released their debut EP 'Ammunition Teeth' in October of 2010, the same month David Fincher's blockbuster 'The Social Network' featured Exray's song 'Hesitation' alongside an Academy Award winning score by Trent Reznor. In February 2011 the band released their first self-titled LP and a series of five videos, which further established their affinity for genre-splicing, technological wreckage and an undusted future.
Speaking of the future: look for a new single by Exray's on the forthcoming 'City Limits' compilation in June and an EP
of six new tracks in September.
