Power pop, power trio, something that might have been on in the background of a 90’s Kevin Smith movie. Whatever. Ex Hex have The Hooks and they’re taking them from Washington DC back to the UK this November. Last October’s debut album ‘Rips’ has middle eights, guitar solos and those don’t-give-a-shit vocals your mum warned you about.
Having just completed a run of European festival dates, the trio of Mary Timony, Laura Harris & Betsy Wright have decided they like it on the classy side of the Atlantic and have announced a short headline tour of the UK around the time of another festival date in The Netherlands. More bands should sound like they’d be at home on the Children of Nuggets box set. Be sure to catch them if you can.
‘Rips’ is out now on Merge Records.
