Meet Matt and Jake, the duo that makes up alternative electronic band EMPXTH. Together they’re making waves in the Chicago community with their buoyant sounds and pulsing beats.
With ethereal instrumentals and strong vocals, their album RECOVER is a stunning collection of dreamy melodies and punchy industrial hooks. Each song seems to blend into another, telling a story of celebration, longing, pain, and hope.
The care of Jake's production work and instrumentation is obvious when listening to their music. It’s technical and clean while also allowing room for experimentation and freedom to breathe outside of the parameters set in place. Matt’s lyrics often feel like a love letter to the listener--they’re intimate in their vulnerability and reflectiveness. Their talents effortlessly come together to create music that is equally powerful and personal.
