Why We're Excited: HEX calls its sound "witch-rock," and damned if it doesn't sound like, well, witch-rock: dark and sinister, gritty and ethereal, muscular and feminine. The portentous epic "Sight Beyond the Line" storms and billows with ominous intensity, driven in part by the commanding presence of singer Kiki van Newtown.
