One of London’s finest psych-punk bands, Weird Sex, have shared their first ever video for Mummy’s Little Soldier, exclusively with VIVA Magazine.
Over rugged vocals, vibrant synths and reverb-drench guitars, there’s an array of colour and flashing lights that beckon you into a grunge basement, leaving you surrounded by the intimidating quartet. It’s a collection of duct taped lips, blacked out eyes and zipped up parkas that feed you into a world of heavy beats rumbling around your brain.
The digressive verses are broken up with clashing drums and excessive rhythm that see’s frontman, Joey Ackland provoke his viewers in a menacing yet addictive manner.
The band plan to release a limited edition split EP tomorrow alongside fellow garage rock band, Broken Soundtracks on Roadkill Records.
You can catch them at their launch show where they’ll be performing with special guests, Secret Tongues and Average Sex, to coincide with the EP release on March 17th.
The free gig will take place at Camden’s Lock Tavern, with an extra special guest DJ set from Gary The Tall.
Forming in 2016, Weird Sex are an accumulation of some of London’s finest underground musicians, with an attractive line up of members from Suicide Party, Deathline and The Sly Persuaders.
Producing sounds reminiscent of the 1970s proto-punk era, the band evolved from Joey Ackland’s previous group, Barra Bravas, which featured Nicholas Wood of The KVB.
With raw, muted guitars, repetitive riffs and relentless energy, Weird Sex spin tales of death, lust and excess, and have been compared to the likes of the New York City punk bands, Suicide and the Ramones.
Featuring 14 tracks, the EP is available to pre-order on cassette and download here.
