Dead Naked Hippies Release Ferocious New Single: Rare

Dead Naked Hippies Release Ferocious New Single: Rare Leeds art punk trio Dead Naked Hippies have made a storming return with ferocious new cut Rare. Led by front woman Lucy Jowett’s outstanding vocals, the track veers from calm interludes into a cathartic chorus provided by Joe Clarke’s bludgeoning guitar riff and Jacob Marston’s stop-start drumming.

Following hot on the heels of Guillotine issued last month, the new cut is produced and mixed by Matt Peel (Pulled Apart By Horses, Eagulls, Menace Beach).

Lucy Jowett has said of Rare, ‘It is a song about self-love. I think we’re quick to judge the term and deem it laughable or irrelevant in fear of being arrogant, or weird. But if you take a hard look at the society we live in, it's clear to see why so many people struggle to feel content in their own minds and their own bodies. I’ve always struggled with myself and it sickens me to think that so many other people feel the same. It needs to change’.

Following a gig for SoFar Session in London this Wednesday (the 5th), the trio head out on an extensive UK tour to back the new single later this month (dates below). Kicking off with a date in Newcastle on the 21st, the trek includes a hometown show at Leeds Brudenell Social Club on October 20th for HERFest.
