Post rock, guitar fueled, soaring energy release without missing the delicacy of structure while exploring new(er) territories, and very welcoming in this their hardest hitting material to date. Impressive.
Favorite track: Saturn.
Really enjoying this band and hope I can make it to a live show. Worth every $ for the yearly subscription for the entire back catalog plus extras. Thanks
Favorite track: Bright side of the moon.

EXXASENS comes back to Earth after a eight-year space travel and 4 DiY albums, including the acclaimed ELEVEN MILES (Aloud Music LTD 2011) and SATELLITES (Aloud Music LTD 2013) and one compilation (2007-2014, Ricco Label, Japan). In this period, EXXASENS has evolved from a one-man solo project (Jordi Ruiz) to a fully-fledged band.
Jordi Ruiz (guitars/programming), Sergio Ledesma (synths/keys), Cesc Cespedes (bass) and Oriol Planells (drums) have recorded the last EXXASENS’ album at Siete Barbas Studios (Barcelona). Containing 8 inspiring songs, BACK TO EARTH offers the band’s renewed vision of instrumental music which introduces choirs, stratospheric guitar solos, electronic groove and even a sung song. The first album single “My hands are planets” is now released with a new video which is the sequel of the remarkable "Rocket to the sky" from the previous album (currently with more than 50.000 visits online).
The powerful and rich multimedia live show delivered by EXXASENS has brought the band to play in some of the most important European stages such as Primavera Sound (Spain, 2015), Dunk! Fest (Belgium, 2014), ProgPower Europe (Netherlands, 2015) or Astral Fest (Russia, 2011, 2013).
EXXASENS’ new album, BACK TO EARTH, will be released in September 7th 2015 by Aloud Music Ltd in Europe, by Ricco Label in Asia (Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia), and by Rock-House in Russia. News about pre-order and editions will be revealed soon

Not having a defined music style is certainly the main appeal of EXXASENS proposal. The EXXASENS universe is full of sound
landscapes which take the listener to a rich world of beautiful and powerful melodies. This could be the homeland of post-rock bands such as Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky, a place full of nice melodies with strong guitar atmospheres....more
Sleepmakeswaves is one of the best bands out there that blend ethereal tracks with other tracks with beautiful interlaced guitar playing, as if both players are feeding off of the energy of the other, creating a massive and powerful energy that cannot be stopped! This is one fantastic record, and is easily one you can put the whole album on and love every single song. Charlie Mayer
