White Hex 'Heat'

White Hex are Tara Green and Jimi Kritzler (Slug Guts), who together offer up debut 12" 'Heat' on Italian imprint Avant! Records. The pair traveled to Egypt in July 2011 from their home in Australia to form ideas for new songs, that winter they arrived in Berlin where 'Heat' was recorded live and mixed by Olle Holmberg. Green and Kritzler forge an opus of dirgeful love songs through their self-styled "Tropical Goth" approach, set in a wasteland of bewitching vocals and fevered guitars. Cold minimal beats lay a base allowing guitars to roam freely playing out allegorical hooks alongside Green's crestfallen voice - best shown on track "Waves". These six bleak odes to lust flux between freezing and boiling point making for a really compelling listen.
