Discussing the video exclusively with V13, Poseur explains:‘“Gentlemen” is definitely the most upbeat song on the EP. It’s the lightest in tone, yet I think still has a strong message. The lyrics are very tongue-in-cheek, poking fun at the idea of traditional gender roles and the old-fashioned stereotype of a ’gentlemen’. While the ’gentlemen’ may be the archetypal perfect man, he also brings with him old fashioned sexist attitudes. The hook seems to stick in people’s heads, so it’s often a fan favorite.’
Formed in 2019, in Leicester, UK, Hex Poseur delivers a voracious and unerringly bold soundscape, bringing together influence from across garage rock, alternative and punk.
2020 saw the release of 2 part EP, ‘Keep It Quiet’, with the sophomore release showing elements of PJ Harvey, Queens of The Stone Age and The White Stripes, an immersive blend of grungy guitars, sharp lyricism and an engrossing vocal delivery.
The subject matter and aesthetic of new EP ‘Hearsay’ is driven by UK punk, both past and present, as well as the Riot Grrrl movement of the 1990’s, and this shines through as an expression of disillusionment in modern day politics and societal disparity – a sharp and smart take on the world in 2022.
‘People today who label themselves as ’gentlemen’ often seem to reflect these same attitudes and aren’t actually as chivalrous as they may want to appear.‘ – Hex Poseur
