Originally hailing from Cork, The Hertz Complex, the chief songwriters of The Hertz Complex are siblings Neil O’Keeffe (lead vocals, guitar) and Paul Keane (guitar). On moving to the current artistic hub of Deptford in London, they were joined by Canadians Benjamin Balan (drums) and Chris Keenan (bass).
After a period where they questioned, it appears at least, just about everything, (I can hear the rock, but where’s the roll gone) In the end, armed with fuzz pedals, and a post-punk attitude, they set about answering them.
That starts in earnest on July 14th when the band release their debut EP, A New Habit. Taken from it is Bossy, this swaying Juggernaut of riffs, driving drums, and soaring guitars, and an almost spoken word vocal, at least for the verse, with poetic imagery making it something thats easy to fall headlong for.
And we have.
