One of the bright new lights of grunge Hex Poseur have all the elements that make you want to listen to them repeatedly. The song writing has plenty of edginess that doesn’t diminish the way it makes you want to jump around to it. It’s pop in a studded jacket and combat boots. Everything is played loose and free, near sleazy at times, and still it’s tight and certain. There are shades of the indie greats in the delivery. You’re also reminded of Nirvana and The Breeders at moments too. Nothing is ground breaking in terms of the technical part of the playing, but dear lord it all fits together so well. This is the way real song writers do things. They take what everyone already knows and make it into something genius. ‘Gentlemen’ bops along and is a generational anthem in the making. Then we come to Hex Poseur’s cherry on an already delicious cake. Those vocals! Smooth as silk, as menacing as a casually swung bike chain and pitch perfect. That voice cuts like a well honed knife. The ‘Hearsay’ EP deserves to be played loud and proud on every alternative radio station in the land. It’s a piece of musical art that needs cherishing. Hex Poseur have just produced an absolute gem.
