Thrashing into life in late 2016 with their caustic brand of punchy post-punk, Dead Naked Hippies return with their first track of 2018 – the raw, gritty and atmospheric “Guillotine.” Opening with a low-key guitar and drum groove, before bursting into fiery life for a cathartic chorus courtesy of Lucy Jowett’s trademark vocals, this conflict of duelling musical identities.

By creating a vehicle, alongside band mates Joe Clarke (guitar) and JacobMarston (drums), through which to express and tackle her own internal issues, Lucy and Dead Naked Hippies offer a space for others to do the same.
