Wellington, New Zealand based Giantess create dark indie pop with alluring vocals, pounding rhythms, and surprisingly heavy riffs bubbling underneath the surface. Heart-songs that are steeped in floods and fires, rendered out of the bones of witch-rock outfit HEX. Giantess released their debut album ‘Big Woman’ on the 14th of May 2020.
Following up the singles “The News” and “Gone, Gone Golden” the new full-length “Big Woman” features the third single “Good Looking Girls”.
Kiki explains the record
“Big Woman’ is a breakup album, an endeavour into deep feeling, and a paean to growing up in a world that only wants you to shrink. Written and recorded over two gruelling years, ‘Big Woman’ charts the course of grief through to vision, braiding together feminine rage, ecology, ethics, and hope.
From 2015 – 2018 HEX toured throughout New Zealand, Australia, and the USA, opening for major acts including Dinosaur Jr, Shonen Knife and The Kills.
The ep ‘Calling to the Universe’ (May 2016) and recent album ‘The Hill Temple’ (February 2018) were both critically well received, garnering extensive support from College Radio across Australasia and the U.S. The band was featured on NPR, Billboard Magazine. in the Chicago Tribune and Noisey.
