"When Ex Hex exploded onto the scene with their unfettered brand of rock and riffage, the power trio for our generation had finally arrived. Made up of Mary Timony (guitar, vocals), Betsy Wright (bass, vocals), and Laura Harris (drums), the group’s 2014 debut ‘Rips’ was a gleaming collection of tightly wound gems and near-constant touring throughout 2015 and 2016 established the band as a force to be reckoned with: an audacious three-piece distilling rock music to its essence with formidable skills and a reputation for frenzied and unabashedly fun live shows." - pressparty.com
"Playing smart, lively pop music with a strong garage rock influence and a dash of punk-style energy, Feels are a Los Angeles-based band led by lead singer and guitarist Laena Geronimo. Their music is buzzy and energetic, with the guitar interplay between Geronimo and Shannon Lay carrying the melodies and adding noisy texture, while bassist Amy Allen and drummer Michael Rudes give the music a strong foundation, and Geronimo's vocal dizzle some sweetener over the top. Feels were in full control of their sound on their self-titled 2016 debut album, but sounded tighter, more aggressive, and more confident on 2019's Post Earth." - via Spotify
