The latest signing on New Heavy Sounds is stoner sludge four-piece Ex People.Emerging from the London DIY scene, vocalist Laura and drummer Vicki first metplaying in series of riot grrrl and noise bands, before forming Ex People in 2015 withguitarist Calum and bassist Ed. The band self-released a digital single "Without/Surekill"in late 2016, which was championed by Terrorizer, Echoes and Dust and The Sludgelordas well as picking up hefty airplay. Now for NHS, the band have delivered a bruisinglyassured debut album. 'Bird' was recorded with Wayne Adams (Vodun, USA Nails, DeathPedals) and he's captured the visceral weight of their sound, a startling amalgam of superfilthy fuzz thick riffs, grunge, noise rock and stoner, combined with a punk attitude. Theten tracks that make up 'Bird' combine stoner hooks and soaring vocals with a crushingheaviness. Add to that some thumping motorik beats (almost like a heavy 'Neu' attimes), shot through with an ever-present melodic sensibility, and you have a band thatonce again shows that when it comes to heavy music, all gates are open. Lyrically Lauradraws on apocalyptic and dystopian themes.
