Jen de la Osa and Henry Beguiristain have made a name for themselves with the searing vocals and straightforward rock efforts of 2008′s Fan the Fury. With Exile, a self-release they funded in part through Kickstarter contributions, Aloud has delivered a stunning, multifaceted opus, proving that Beguiristain can do more than bust guitar strings and de la Osa is hardly just another girl screaming into a microphone.

Fan the Fury rested firmly on strong guitar lines and epic, inciting choruses wrought with pugilistic percussion. Exile provides a graduation for those who wanted to see Aloud expand. "Counterfeit Star," with its handclaps and plucky piano, is a refreshing contrast to the mournful refrains of "To Die at Sea." Exile exudes confidence, and great things are still to come.

ALOUD CELEBRATE AT CHURCH ON THU 9.23.10.
