Scared To Dance presents Ex-Vöid on Friday 15th July at The Ivy House.

Support comes from Hot Puds and Eli Vor and tickets are on sale at DICE.

Ex-Vöid were formed back in 2018 by Alanna McArdle and Owen “O” Williams from the Welsh Music Prize-winning punk group Joanna Gruesome. The band have since expanded to their current four-piece line-up and have already shared stages with the likes of Waxahatchee and Speedy Ortiz. With their fantastic self-titled EP released in 2018, and followed up by the single, “Only One”, the band have drawn comparison to the likes of The Lemonheads and Teenage Fanclub with their winning blend of melody and jangle. The band recently released their debut album, Bigger Than Before, out on Don Giovanni Records and Prefect Records, featuring the singles “Churchyard” and “No Other Way”.

Hot Puds channel the fuzzy heartbreak of Weezer, the dudes rock ethos of Guided by Voices, and the tightly-woven pop of The Cars. Their recent Hot Puds 2 EP tackled deeply unimportant subjects such as seasonal allergies (“Hayfever”) and deathly fear of illegal streaming (“Pirate Bay”), are lovingly swaddled in overcharged riffs and ill-advised dual guitar leads.

Eli Vor is a shifting musical project influenced by the loud and the quiet, the light and the dark, the weight and the weightless. Anchored by the songs and singing of London-based multi-instrumentalist Oliver Catt (Fantasy Rainbow, Orpine), Eli Vor uses the inhale and the exhale to explore what it means to be alive at the end of history.
