Dead Naked Hippies thrashed into life in late 2016. The trio, bolstered by let-loose front woman Lucy Jowett, have cemented their take-your-head-off wall of sound infused Art Rock. Since their inception, they have received love from BBC Introducing, KCRW & been featured by DIY, Clash, Metro & PRS M Magazine. The band have shared stages with the likes of Dream Wife & Le Butcherettes and played to a sold out crowd at Live at Leeds, which lead to a slot on the Festival Republic stage at Leeds Festival.

"Like Estrons in a bar brawl with Blood Red Shoes, they take 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"- DIY

"These guys are coming at you with a wall of sound, all driving guitars and booming percussion, bolstered by enigmatic front-woman Lucy’s powerful vocals." - Metro
