Hex Girls

Cedar Falls, Iowa

Indie rock

Hex Girls are a 4-piece rough and tumble rock band from Cedar Falls, Iowa. They sound like Iggy Pop and the Arctic Monkeys bathed in PBR.

Hex Girls was conceived by brothers John and Nick Fisher along with Charlie “Chuck” Patterson, as a rock-roll antidote to the monotonous hum of their humble hometown, Mechanicsville, Iowa. The trio moved to Cedar Falls and teamed up with producer and drummer Ross Klemz, who joined Hex Girls in 2017.

Their debut album, “More of That,” is a 9-song barnstormer opening with hard-hitting “God Can’t Count,” and closing with up-tempo single “Bite Outta Life.” Among the songs bridging these numbers are “City of Rain” — a Spoon-inspired track featuring a spoken-word meditation that borders on baptist sermon — and “Highway Gardens,” an ode to time travel and sex in the parking lot of a 1950’s dance hall, told through a pastiche of T. Rex and the Rolling Stones.

The band toured for the initial release of "More of That" in summer of 2018, kicking off with an appearance at 80/35 music festival in Des Moines. They released the album digitally on September 1, 2018, and on vinyl on December 31, 2018. It is available for streaming on all digital platforms. Plans are underway for another summer tour in 2019.
