Three years ago, Alex Whitelaw left the band that he was in and decided to start his own surf rock solo project called Sexy Girls. His efforts culminated in a nine-song album called The Collection, which was released on Bandcamp in 2012. "Tell Me" should give you a perfect taste of the nonchalant, summery sound that defines the album.
Today, Sexy Girls is a four-piece indie rock band comprised of Steve Kerr (drums), Sam Hatch (guitar), Ben Semeta (bass), and Whitelaw (vocals, rhythm guitar) – but Whitelaw still writes all the music. The Amherst, MA band is currently working on a new album called Satan’s Hands which they hope to release in August, and will perform at the 13th Floor Music Lounge in Florence, MA on April 24. – Mary Reines
