Listen: Ex Hex’s brash debut single “Hot and Cold”

on February 03, 2014, 1:45pm

With the future of Wild Flag uncertain, guitarist Mary Timony went ahead and formed a new band called Ex Hex. Named after her own 2005 solo album, the D.C.-based musician and former Helium-member has teamed up up with Laura Harris and Betsy Wright to make driving, retro-inflected power-pop. Signed to Merge, the trio will release their debut 7-inch on March 18th, which will be followed up by a full-length studio album later this year.

“Hot and Cold”, the A-side off their 7-inch, is straight-up rock and roll, anchored by energetic power-chords and a soaring lead. Listen in below and check out tour dates
