Ex Libras are Amit Sharma (guitar, vocals), Kieran Nagi (piano, bass)
and Ross Kenning (drums). The band started in the unlikeliest of
musical hotspots, Hounslow Borough Library, where they worked together.
Soon after meeting, they were swapping music and jamming. The boys
describe their first few practices as quite out there amalgamating
their love of rock with loops, noise and beats.
Ex Libras influences are as varied as their music. The boys share a
love of hip-hop, orchestral music, electronic music, funk, jazz -
alternative music with groove, say the band. Ex Libras are a band
that know no boundaries. Live, the band performs with a passion that
will make your heart skip a beat audiences are quickly captivated with
the bands melodic finesse that remains unparalleled amongst their
The bands debut album Suite(s) was recorded live in a garden shed (Ex
Libras studio). They initially wrote two sets (or suites) each
comprising of four pieces, which framed the main body of the record.
This debut effort is the combined imagination of the band, taking their
first steps into the musical world. Suite(s) perfectly encompasses Ex
Libras melodic sensibilities and entwines them with Kid A-era
Radiohead style beats and harmonically haunting vocals.
This is the sound of a band with longevity, willing to challenge
themselves and the listener without losing their sense of a good tune.
Ex Libras are a band with, literally a life force, not to be ignore,
never to be missed.
