To mark the start of their headline UK tour, London band Average Sex have announced their new single ‘Erotomania’. Average Sex’s Laetitia explains: “’Erotomania’ is a form of paranoid delusion in which a person believes that another person is in love with them, despite contrary evidence. The theme was strongly inspired by Garbage’s song #1 Crush. It is an LGBTQ+ song about the pains of love.”

The single is part of a new three-track EP ‘Erotomania’ set for release on 5 September once again on Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings who have supported the band from the beginning. The new EP follows on from the band’s previous two acclaimed sold-out EPs ‘Melodie’ and ‘Ice Cream’.
With Average Sex it’s love at first sight and love at first listen – just depends whether you see them live or hear one of their records first. If you like girls, boys, guitars, melodies and something to dance to then Laetitia, Sam, Louise, Finn and Jamie might well be your new BFFs. Finding love, falling out of love, slashing tyres, eating ice cream – all the major subjects are covered in classic three-minute pop gems that you will still be humming days later. Their songs are gorgeous and their gigs are hectic.
