Joy Exit is an Istanbul and New York based Cinematic Pop Duo. Their name was inspired by Frida Kahlo's dying words, "I hope the exit is joyful and I hope never to return."
The vision of creating an electronic pop sound with a seductive cinematic essence brought the two members of the band together. The music and lyrics that emerged were sparked by the desire for freedom from the limitations imposed by fear and conditioning.
Dark and melancholic with an acutely cinematic edge and a hint of arabesque, Joy Exit merge their dreamy synth-soundscape with wistful guitars and a lush, moody contralto.
