Psych-Space Rockers Sons Of Hippies To Release Highly Anticipated New Album On Cleopatra Records – July 16, 2013
Conceived by the spiritual union of guitarist/vocalist Katherine Kelly and drummer Jonas Canales amidst the good vibes of the Bonnaroo Music Festival, Sons Of Hippies began their journey in 2008, adding bassist David Daly to the fold in 2011. Together the trio conquered the Florida music scene, earning accolades from audiences and critics alike including honors from their local alternative weekly Creative Loafing. True to their name, the band struggles to maintain the hopeful humanism of their '60s forebears while living in today's alienating post-modern society. "I have always been drawn to ideas of perception versus reality," says Katherine, "Humans live to tell stories to each other. But what happens in translation is often such a mutation of the truth that we become ideas of ourselves instead of just ourselves. I want our music to remind people to come back to themselves."
But the band isn't all ponderous philosophy - the first official video promoting Griffons, "Spaceship Ride," is a musical peyote trip back to child-like innocence, while the video for "Rose" cheekily sends-up '70s exploitation flicks with the band themselves cast as the surprised victims of 3 blood-lusty females. As UK magazine Vive Le Rock enthused in their review of Griffons "Psychedelia just got sexy."
Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven is available on CD, vinyl and cassette!
