Exit was born in the mid-1990s out of Austin, Texas' Ben Londa's love of electronic music, particularly the ambient soundscapes of Global Communication and early Projekt Records releases. Meshing electronics with guitars, Londa began self-releasing albums at rapid speed. 2005's The Way Out Is Through showed Londa's maturity as a songwriter, garnering praise from publications all around the world. Merging acoustic guitars and electronics with elements of new wave and shoegaze, The Way Out Is Through has been described as "one of the best, most well-crafted albums of the year" by CD Baby and "a very important release and an artist to pay attention to" by Dark Austin.

No longer a solo project, Exit is a 4-piece act, currently recording the next record - The Blind Alley - further showcasing the poignant lyricism and achingly beautiful music that made The Way Out Is Through such a success. Upon the March 2012 release, Exit will embark on several regional and international tours.
