Hexa (not to be confused with the same-named duo featuring Lawrence English with Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart) is an electronic pop project launched in 2015 by Carrie Gillespie Feller (Tactical Ffever, Street of Little Girls, Lunar Maps). Her gig with Ilya came to an end when that band split, playing its last gig in November 2015 and freeing Feller to pursue her new project.
Feller and her husband Scott Feller (Street of Little Girls) founded Hours in 2015, alongside Hexa drummer Rostam Zafar (Bleak Skies). They were later joined by Josh Quon (Die Miﬂbildungen Des Menschen).
In 2016, Carrie Gillespie Feller, Josh Quon, and Scott Feller co-founded Pleasure Model with Mitch Wilson (No Knife). The following year, she co-founded Possible Man With Possible Gun, featuring members of Bleak Skies, Hexa, and Hours, including drummer Aaron Queen (guitarist for Bleak Skies and drummer/keyboardist for Di Nigunim), and cellist Dale Holland.
Early 2018 found Hexa playing around town with their newest member, singer/guitarist Megan Liscomb (Bunny Gang/Boy King, Soft Lions, P.J. Sparkles).
