Archie Powell and the Exports have emerged from Chrome Attic with their third album! Produced by John Alvin (Surfer Blood, Netherfriends, Santah), the album is comprised of 12 powerful new songs that reprise the irresistible pop hooks of their previous work in a darker, noisey framework. Expect the album in early 2014. To celebrate their release from the dark confines of the recording studio, the band is hitting the road for a tour through midwest and southeast en route to CMJ.
The Exports are a group effort but as the songwriter and frontman of the band, it's inevitable that it be a strong reflection on Powell. "I guess the duality between a pop rock aesthetic and the darker lyrical content kind of speaks to how I carry myself socially. I'm a pretty upbeat individual if you give me a quick once-over, but there are a few poor souls out there who have clearance cards to the super classified bad parts of my brain. They exist, you just gotta dig deeper, I guess.
