The Ex-Girlfriends Club My Laria & Show # 560

Channeling the spirits of The Stooges, The Cramps and a bit of 90s psychedellia, Portland, Oregon’s The Ex-Girlfriends Club released a video for their song “My Laria” in early 2015. The song, which is a play on words also features a strong pop element that is mixed in amongst fuzzy, hazy garage and psychedelic dynamics. The video for the song features, like the band’s current sound, multiple layers and trippy effects that hover around in your mind like a mosquito. In addition to the moving images provided by the music video and the oscillating guitar fuzz in the actual song, the band also had an interesting line-up change recently. The band’s drummer known as Action Lord switched from drums to guitar. This has been said to add a percussive guitar element to the band’s sound. The band recruited drummer Scotty Sounds from the band Pink Snowflakes to take over the role of drummer, while the rest of the band’s line-up remained the same. “My Laria” will be featured on The Ex-Girlfriends Club new album Sun Heart Razor Burn. It will be released on May 19th.
