Jon Bernson, Michael Falsetto-Mapp and Jason Kick specialize in lo-fi electronic pop made from gritty beats, voice mail vocals and timeless melodies. The band released their debut EP 'Ammunition Teeth' in October of 2010, the same month that David Fincher's blockbuster 'The Social Network' featured Exray's song 'Hesitation' alongside an Academy Award winning score by Trent Reznor. In February 2011 Exray's released their first self-titled LP and a series of videos, which were premiered by Pitchfork, Altered Zones, Spin, MOKB and The Bay Bridged. Their music has been Forkasted by Pitchfork, praised by Prefix and reviewed by dozens of other blogs.
'Trust a Robot' reveals Exray's obsession with the dystopian visions of Philip K. Dick, Syd Mead, William Burroughs and James Blaylock. Part of a growing electronic pop movement in San Francisco, Exray's fuse elements of beatmaking, underground dance music, inventive songwriting and a fascination with the future. Since the release of their first record, the band has performed with a long list of likeminded innovators: Toro Y Moi, tUnE-yArDs, The Soft Moon, Nite Jewel, Cloud Nothings, Thao Nguyen, Matthew Dear, Adventure, Dosh, Braids, Tim Cohen, The Sandwitches, John Vanderslice, Weekend and Pictureplane. The band has contributed to numerous comps, including Secret Seven's 'In a Cloud,' which features some of San Francisco's best known bands: The Fresh & Onlys, Thee Oh Sees, Sonny and the Sunsets, Kelley Stoltz and The Sandwitches.
