London band Average Sex have premiered a new video for Ugly Strangers, taken from their debut EP ‘Ice Cream’ that was released in December 2017 via Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings. The video gives a BTS look at the world of Average Sex from the last few months – watch the video via YouTube below.
Here’s the band’s vocalist Laetitia Bocquet on what the band have been up to: “A year and a half ago, Sam and I were just writing our first demos in my kitchen. The quality of the sound was so terrible that a friend even asked if we recorded with a spoon. Fast forward 18 months and we had released our first 12″ record and completed a big tour with the Charlatans! It definitely blew our minds. I can’t even describe how fun it was to play all these great venues, meet all these amazing people and discover all these cities I had never set foot in before.”
“In the new year we got to play our first shows outside of the UK. When we played in my hometown, Paris, it was a big family outing, even my 78-year-old grandmother came. Amsterdam was very fun too, for different reasons… To be honest, we’re just very thankful and we feel super lucky that we get to live all these experiences. We’re now really looking forward to our first festival season and to the release of our second EP that we just finished recording in Cheshire with Tim Burgess and James Spencer.”
Next on the agenda for Average Sex is a new EP, produced by Tim Burgess, that will be released this summer via O Genesis.
