Ex Hex Tough Enough Music Video New song
Ex Hex’s “Tough Enough” video

    Ex Hex, the DC-based noise pop trio led by Helium/Wild Flag’s Mary Timony, had a solid breakout in 2014 with their debut LP, Rips. Five years later, the trio is finally ready to follow that album up with their sophomore full-length, It’s Real, set for a March 22nd release. After sharing the shimmering single “Cosmic Cave” to coincide with the album announcement, the band is back today with another new taste in “Tough Enough”.

    The opening track off It’s Real, “Tough Enough” is a leather-clad booster of garage pop resilience. With power chord riffs backed up by whammy-heavy undercurrents, the track encourages “turning on your tough switch and forging ahead through whatever storms are happening around you ’cause you have no choice,” as a Ex Hex put it in a press release.

    “Tough Enough” comes via its Brandon Herman-directed video, which sees the band surviving a nuclear apocalypse to become rock saviors of the New World. Check out the clip below.
