On his debut album Exit Form, Scarypoolparty shares the contrast between beauty and brutality while effortlessly moving across genres. The music takes the listener on a sonic journey from the opening epic “Black Cross” to the soaring acoustic guitar mastery showcased on the closing “Out Loud”.  Written and produced mainly by Alejandro Aranda (Scarypoolparty) and TJ Routon (Sawyr), Exit Form illuminates his undeniable originality on songs like Millennial Love—a relatable song that delves deep into the psyche of the dominance of social media and smart phones in our society.  Another highlight is “Tonight” written and produced by Aranda and George Lewis Jr (Twin Shadow), a ballad that begins in hushed piano tones before shifting into much darker textures with elegant vocal work. That high-impact contrast also infuses “Cholo Love”, a pop track that merges Sawyr’s warped beats with Scarypoolparty’s sweeping piano work and soulful vocals.

Beginning with the 6 plus minute “Black Cross”, Scarypoolparty brings the listener in with a beautiful intro before heading into heavier territory with layered soundscapes and coming full circle in the outro.  Drawing influence from Nine Inch Nails and Ministry, “DIAMONDS” hits full throttle with industrial tones and intense vocals.  Exit Form begins to veer into electronic territory with “Dance The Night Away” featuring some amazing high-energy synth and production precision layered with Darren King’s rhythm.  “Vampire Shade” and “Beneath The Skin” both feature first class musicianship coupled with incredible melodic classical soundscapes, soaring vocals and pulsing bass from Maxx Diaz.  King’s drumming and Aranda’s synth work highlight “True Religion” before the album begins to sway into the mid tempo burner “Heartstorm”.   “10 Years” is the first song ever written by Aranda, and illuminates his immediate songwriting ability with complex lyrical content about relationships.  The album wraps with the viral hit “Out Loud” with just Aranda and his acoustic guitar showcasing his otherworldly guitar playing and heartfelt vocals.
