Boston Duo EX-HYENA Shares Twilight Hallucination ‘CAPTURE THE STILLS’ From Upcoming Album

Daily electricity to load your batteries

26 January 2022

Band: EX-HYENA (Boston, MA)
Who: The musical project of Bo Barringer and Reuben Bettsak
crafting the sound of an emerging dystopia, a sort of fantasy
land that existed along the margins of reality and within the
confines of the imagination. A very short time later, their music
is simply the sound of our enclosed reality.


New cut from the duo’s forthcoming sophomore album
Moon Reflections, the follow-up to last year’s critically
acclaimed debut Artificial Pulse.

Bettsak: “‘Capture the Stills is dark and menacing. Bo wrote the lyrics to this one.
It certainly fits the vibe, and themes that Ex-Hyena often covers. To me, it’s like falling
into a David Lynch movie void, and witnessing two characters in a volatile relationship,
or something like that. This was the last song written for the second LP, and I’m glad
it made it on the album.”

Turn Up The Volume: This twilight hallucination resonates as the shadowy side of Depeche Mode and the enigmatic darkwave murk of The Soft Moon. The iterating synth-riff at work here gets under your skin without asking. The atmosphere is impending, the tone is obscure, the color is black. All you need for a sonic nightmare.
