“Glitter & Blood is a mutated version of my life story. It reflects on the queer experience as well as my personal ambitions, and urges the listener to disappear into a vampiric fantasy world.” – Mira Glitterhound (Vocals/Guitar/Arrangements)

Biography:

Sweeping Exits are queer vampires from Portland, OR. Their music is a mix of 1970s Glam Rock and Horror, with each release structured like a short film. The upcoming LP Glitter & Blood tells the story of a vampire rockstar who becomes Queen of the Vampires, and ultimately leads in the destruction of the human race. It’s sort of like Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Suspiria and a little Nick Cave.
Artistically, the band seeks to reclaim horror as a means of queer and femme empowerment. An all Trans band, they explore these storylines as a way to reflect on their experience and gain a sense of liberation from oppression. The world created in Sweeping Exits’ work is one where the queers have the power; a vital respite for a band who’s daily experience is the opposite. Part of what drives Sweeping Exits to reach the widest audience possible is the desire to offer this world to young queers around the country.
Glitter & Blood pulls from a wide array of influences, from the classic Glam of Roxy Music, Bowie and 70s Lou Reed, to the first-wave Punk of the Damned and the Adverts. Also heard within their sound is romantic era classical music, and some more modern influences like Elliott Smith and Pulp. The prequel EP The Projectionist showcases the band’s darker side, steeped more in early Post-Punk, Nick Cave, and the film scores of Bernard Herrmann. Sweeping Exits’ constantly shifting sound and aesthetic is an important part of their work, and will continue to evolve through the 4-LP storyline begun by Glitter & Blood.
