HEX Wellington, New Zealand

HEX is the progeny of wives Kiki and GG Van Newtown, a musical love affair who draw on influences spanning classical to folk to punk to metal. They align quick, incisive lyrics and rock opera levels of riffage to reflect the chaos approaching post-capitalism. HEX is joined by Jason Erskine whose heavy drumming lays the perfect foundation for their intricate guitar riffs and dual vocals. ... more

Track Name: Prayer
pray to the mother / life giver life taker
pray to the mother / earth shaker rain maker
pray to the mother / may she love us true
welcome us into her hearth / make a home for me and you

together / forever
Track Name: Wives
we were in a new town / two ends of the same street
in the middle was a crossroad / and that is where we'd meet
under the bubblegum tree / beside the stone walled church
that is where we would agree / to be
each others blessing and each others curse

on the sunset beach / on the pacific fringe
our tears drop into the ocean / staring out at oil rigs
we down our simple times / under the cover of night
and that is where we would agree / to be
each others compass and each others light
Track Name: Albatross
turn your face to ocean breeze
what floats above and hides beneath
a plastic island in the sea
testament to human greed
around that junkyard in the sea
the birds fly over hungrily
they eat the island in the sea
become their own mortality

instead of the cross
the albatross around my neck was hung

thick sea fog of history cannot hide the squawking beaks
the haunting sound of beating wings
the sceptre song the sea bird sings
Track Name: Ignoring the Problem
aren't you sickened by this waste
while people starve / don't you think it's cruel?
does it make you sick that you won't change
because you need the poor to rule?
Track Name: Witches of the Hex
calling to the sisters / calling to the mother
calling to the universe / calling to you
