Mary Timony, Laura Harris and Betsy Wright are Ex Hex, named after an earlier Mary Timony solo album (her third) released in 2005. Timony has chosen a colourful path to her latest R’n’R with a Pop Art video splashed across the screen in bright reds, yellows and blues. It’s a record of rowdy guitars executed with a subtle precision, a knack for hooks and a lyrical playfulness via a degree in English literature from Boston University. She has also studied viola and that’s probably why her approach to simplicity seems to have an uncommon element in her guitar playing and songwriting – it’s something she has unlearnt – and that’s what makes her special.
