If you're not familiar with Ex Hex, you may know its members. Wild Flag guitarist Mary Timony went right ahead and started her own band with Wild Flag's trajectory uncertain and I'd say it was a good choice to do so. She's teamed up with Laura Harris and Betsy Wright to make a scrappy sort of power-pop that sounds like it came straight from the 90's in all the best ways. They're signed to Merge Records, and their debut 7" will be out on 18th March followed by their debut album later on in 2014. They've got a tour coming up in March with a few days at SXSW, and you can check those out below!
