Leeds rockers Dead Naked Hippies unleash fierce debut single ‘Lights Out’
“twisting, sharp-as-a-knife guitar lines and wield them like a weapon. A statement of intent that sounds perfectly suited to both dingy basements and sun-kissed festival main stages, it’s a hugely promising first step.” DIY
‘Lights Out’ is a first glimpse into the raucous sound of Dead Naked Hippies. Written in the hallowed walls of Temple of Boom and produced by Matt Peel (Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses, Autobahn), the track embraces the post punk aesthetic of the burgeoning Leeds scene whilst dancing around punchy alt rock.
‘L.O.’ tells a feverish tale of dwindling human emotion, ultimately questioning sanity and what it means to be alive. Unrelenting drums and hypnotic guitar underpin the towering vocal of front-gal Lucy Jowett.
The band have already played two shows supporting Edinburgh’s Man of Moon and Leeds Garage Band New Woman at the Brudenell Social Club. Their vivacious live show goes hand in hand with their kooky & anthemic offerings, and you’d be forgiven for thinking there’s a sprinkling of satire.
