Hailed as Punk's newest daughter…“A punk-rocker who wants the music to speak again” is how 20-year-old BEX describes herself, along with a list of things that “suck” (Sexism, Racism, Fast fashion, Judgementalism and heartbreak) and things that “don’t suck” (Riffs, Self-expression & expressive art, Inclusion & Equality, Feminism and Respect).A massive rock fan herself, listing influences including System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine alongside female-fronted bands The Pretty Reckless & Paramore, as the 2020 lockdowns started to bite BEX honed her creativity and vision from her student bedroom.
A disciple of big riffs, she picked up a Bass and found that everything sounded better when you played it lower down. With an innate sense of what makes her generation tick and the problems facing the world today (see her list above), she started putting up self-filmed bass covers of her favourite riffs, dressed in her own clothes (made, stitched and sewed by her).2022 saw BEX release her first tracks (totally independently) as well as support Abby Roberts, Sick Joy, Black Foxxes & others plus riotous sets at Alternative Escape, Y Not Festival and IKEA’s From Home livestream. In July BEX performed from Scruff Of The Neck's central HQ in Manchester livestreaming from their Twitch TV Channel peaking with over 15,000 online viewers.You can certainly let BEX’s music, messaging & arresting visuals do the talking.
