Nick Zammuto and Paul de Jong of The Books first began collaborating when they were neighbors New York City in 1999 creating what they considered pop music. After countless lounge room sessions, by a mix of accident and design, the pair developed a sound that over a decade later still defies categorization and mystifies critics and fans alike. The pair’s debut album ‘Thought For Food’ (2002) showcased their now signature combination of acoustic music and electronic samples and following records ‘The Lemon Of
Pink’ and ‘Lost And Safe’ cemented the duo at the forefront of this exciting sonic experimentation. Now, after three albums over the course of a decade, The Books have grown to become one of modern music's most genuine innovators. Their music has been called many things: surreal, playful, transcendent, innovative, magical, heart breaking. Creatively complex and truly refreshing ‘The Way Out’ continues the Books' tradition of meticulous, existential song
craft, infusing the playfully surreal elements of previous albums with a humorous, childlike excitement. Produced and recorded as always in The Books' home studios, ‘The Way Out’ expands on the charm and intimacy of past endeavours with a deeper emotional resonance
and an ever-impressive marriage of seemingly disparate sound worlds. With ‘The Way Out’ The Books have mastered the precarious balance of beauty, absurdity and accessibility.
