Comprised of singer-guitarist Travis Johnson, drummer Steve Levine, and bassist Jay Heiselmann, NYC-based band Grooms have been pushing the boundaries of tones and textures since their inception. Their latest release, Exit Index, continues that trend as the band wade in dark atmospherics, establishing a central aesthetic that they never deviate too far from through its ten-tracks, but find new ways to extrapolate making for an engaging listen and rewards repeats.

My personal favorite, “Horoscopes,” is a stormy sum of the trio’s powers as Johnson, co-owner of the Brooklyn pedal company Death By Audio Effects, weaves searing sonics on top of the brilliant rhythms.
