Average Sex forms when Tottenham’s Sam O’Donovan meets Parisian, Laetitia Bocquet, at a Burger Records showcase[2] in London in August 2016.

The name was suggested by O'Donovan when the pair first started writing songs. “When Sam suggested it I was fine with it because I didn’t think it was going to leave the kitchen anyway,” says lead singer Laetitia, laughing and referring to the early days of the band when they started out recording music in her kitchen.[3]

They are soon joined by Kidd, Earwaker and Graeme.

In 2017, they support The Charlatans at New Slang in Kingston and Tim Burgess notices them.

Average Sex release their debut EP through Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings. The artwork for the EP was designed by the band’s vocalist and illustrator Laetitia Bocquet. Standout track is Ice Cream is a two minutes and eighteen seconds of perfect indie pop that recalls the Shop Assistants before the major label album mixed with Alvvays.[4]

In 2018, Average Sex release a second EP, Melodie, through Tim Burgess’ O Genesis Recordings. The EP was produced by Tim Burgess and James Spencer and recorded in Cheshire.[5]
