In anticipation of their brand new full length album, Florida-based psychedelic space rock trio Sons Of Hippies will premiere a new single and video "Rose" on the music & culture website MXDWN.com this Monday, June 17th. "Rose" is the second single from the Hippies' new album, Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven, mixed by Jack Endino (Nirvana, L7) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios, to be released July 16th on Cleopatra Records.
Directed by James Herrholz, "Rose" stars SOH vocalist/guitarist Katherine Kelly, drummer Jonas Canales and bassist David Daly out for a drive in their classic, cherry red Mustang on a sun soaked Florida afternoon when they encounter a seductive trio of car washing vixens. Much sudsy fun and playful teasing ensues. But things are not all what they seem and soon enough the story takes a shocking turn you'll have to see to believe!

Sons Of Hippies was conceived high in the mountains of Tennessee amid fellow music lovers at a festival on a 700-acre farm. Their name originated when Brazilian native Jonas Canales and Florida-bred Katherine Kelly probed familial bonds to discover they were, indeed, children of hippy parents. The duo's dreamy, melodic but complexly synthesized music struck a chord with audiences and earned the band a critic's choice award from Tampa's popular Creative Loafing magazine for "Best Modern-Sounding Record" in 2009. Bassist David Daly joined the group in 2011 and in December of the following year, the band signed with Cleopatra Records. The resulting album is the group's strongest and most ambitious set of recordings to date, and earned these young upstarts a spot on a summer tour with two giants of classic and progressive rock.
