We are Excorde, a multi-genre resourced rock band with founding members Jimena Arroyo, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Jonnie Cook, from Chicago, USA. We met on SoundCloud and have been writing songs together for well over four years now. We strongly feel that our sound and compositional chemistry stands out from the mainstream, honing innovative musical turns in recognizable ways to gratify our listeners' need to discover something new and remember it well.
Musically, Excorde's songs feature a very broad yet cohesive influence and fusion of 80's and 90’s rock genres, from adult-oriented, classic, alternative, indie, progressive, alt. country, pop, metal, to the most important element of all: Excorde's truly original sound.
Lyrically, expect to find thoughtful and deeply moving phrasings about experiences in love and life.
Jimena’s emotional voice combined with Jonnie’s distinctive instrumental constructions will transport you to another dimension where catchy choruses, killer guitar riffs, and meaningful lyrics are imbued throughout the listening experience with Excorde. The spectrum from deeply intimate to powerfully epic is thoroughly explored, captured and rendered, sometimes within the same song.
Having utilized a wide variety of rock genres, styles, nuances and ideas, they demonstrate a cohesive and distinctive identity of their very own. They feel that, within their music, you will identify with the best of familiar components of these genres, blended seamlessly with a real plethora of new ideas and originality.
