The New EXES Track Will Make You Wish Your Relationship Wasn’t ‘Over’

The new EXES single, ‘Over’, is a sparkly dream pop track with a high production value. Singer Allie McDonald’s saccharin-sweet vocals mesh well with producer Mike Derenzo’s airy, flowing backing track. The duo’s affinity for wet reverb is very clear. Oftentimes, production choices like that tend to drown a piece, but not here. Many songs like this come off as vague and directionless, but on ‘Over’ EXES does a fantastic job of maintaining the listener’s attention with strong composition and even better performances.
