D.C. trio Ex Hex is prepping a debut 7-inch for release next month via Merge, and in advance of that, they’ve shared the album single Hot And Cold. No, it’s not a cover of the Katy Perry song—it’s a smashing, stomping, harmonic mess with sunny vocals fighting for space with crunchy guitars and floods of feedback. A full-length is set to follow sometime later this year, but for now you’ll have to content yourself with these three minutes of warm-up scuzz.
