Fans of Echo, Siouxsie, and Killing Joke will be attracted to The Opposite Sex.

Check out “Frozen Heart/Frozen Mind” (MP3) from the band’s upcoming Live + Burn EP.
Listen! Post!

[MP3] “Frozen Heart/Frozen Mind”:

“If you're like us and you're still culturally camped out in 1985, we have a band for you: D.C. natives The Opposite Sex.” -The Washington Post

The Opposite Sex has been described as majestic, powerful, dramatic, intense and unhinged. Apt verbiage considering a handful of the band’s influences which include Echo & The Bunnymen, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Killing Joke, New Model Army, T.S.O.L and other 80s-era legends with beautiful hair.

Live + Burn is the follow-up to The Opposite Sex’s 2007 full-length Violent Heartstrings and breathes bigger life into the group’s dark, post punk sound, heightening its elements of pop and 60's psych.

Leave It All Behind” begins with an icy, emotional verse that breaks into a catchy, unforgettable chorus. Songs like “Another Big Bang” and “Frozen Heart/ Frozen Mind” (MP3) depict a strange anxiety, over layered textures of aggressive guitars and drums.

Check out tracks from The Opposite Sex’s Live + Burn via the links below and see the band live in Philly and Brooklyn in September. Stay tuned for more dates with The Opposite Sex this fall.

“The fondest affections are reserved for those new and exciting bands that seem to appear out of thin air… The Opposite Sex is that sort of band…”
