Hex Girls Single/Video Release: “Electric Eel”

Cedar Falls’ most playful punk popsters (and currently one of Iowa’s best rock bands), Hex Girls have released a new single and accompanying video for their song “Electric Eel.” The tune will be featured on their upcoming album, Pop Fluff, to be released April 2. It’s a fun romp in a dinosaur costume that will have you feeling like you’re at CBGB during the late ’70s, instead of in an Iowa winter during a pandemic.

Crank it up during your morning coffee to really give your day a jolt in all the right places.

Hex Girls talked more about the song and video for the site New Noise:

The band finished recording the upcoming album, Pop Fluff, the first week of March, right before the severity of the COVID-19 situation began to hit home in the US. As we postponed and later canceled our summer tour, along with the rest of our 2020 plans, we started to realize that the track “Electric Eel” in particular embodied the strange anxiety of living through 2020.
