Following a series of well-received EPs on their own Pop Can Records (a record label and artist collective Morrissey and close collaborator Jesse Schuster run with friends), a digital single for Hardly Art’s 15th anniversary series, and some colorful music videos that crystallized the band’s visual aesthetic along with their sound, ill peach’s “weirdo stuff” comes to fruition on first full-length  This is Not an Exit,: a collection of anthemic songs built out of bright pop and gritty experimental elements (Morrissey names the sculptural use of distortion on the final albums by Low as an inspiration), punctuated with hooky choruses ready to be screamed along to in the safety of your own bedroom or with a bunch of friends at one of ill peach’s intense live shows.

If ill peach first blossomed in New York, it took quarantine in Los Angeles for the project to ripen. Corazza describes it as a time when “the veil of the music industry fell down—you couldn’t put on a facade anymore because everything was too fucking real.” The end of the world turned out to be what ill peach needed to get real with themselves. “It helped us creatively to zone in and removed us from the [industry] side of things to where we could just be like: this is our new identity, let's jump with both feet.”

 This is Not an Exit's title is a reflection of something Corazza realized during a period of personal and familial crises. “I kept walking into buildings and I’d try to exit somewhere and the sign would be like, ‘This is not an exit,’” she says. “It just felt like a metaphor for a hopeful thing—don't give up yet.” The combination of hope and anxiety is all over This is Not an Exit, reflected in a sonic palette (Alternative! Electronica! Indie! Radio Pop! Coldplay!) as eclectic as it is unpretentious.
