New Band To Burn One To: Ex People




This doom outfit caught our attention initially by labelling themselves as ‘cool doom’ on their bandcamp page, and while we couldn’t really describe what that means in words to you right now, they’ve hit the nail on the head in their sound with their EP Loss, contrasting three songs of chokingly heavy doom riffs with sweetly dreamscape vocals drifting each word around a swirly vortex, uplifting while the guitars and percussion crush.

The opening song on the EP, ‘The Erlenmeyer Flask’ is named after the finale episode of the first season of The X-Files TV show, which from the outset lets you know that they’re a doom band not just singing about sacrifices, the occult, and all other stereotypes associated to the genre. Ex People are a genuine breath of fresh air to the doom genre, and one that could see the band going places. Check out what we mean for yourselves below.
