‘Animal Farm’ is the soundtrack to our Orwellian vision of a dystopian society where all is not well, and all are not equal…’ – Filthy Hippies
Established in 2018 Filthy Hippies is a South African Alternative trio with a strong undercurrent of Shoegaze influences. The band quickly established themselves as solid contenders in the explosive, burgeoning South African psych scene and list supporting Post-punk band Dangerfield’s album launch, and 2019’s Endless Daze Festival as current highlights.
Filthy Hippies create a sound that is best described as a Phil Spector’esque wall of sound hitched to deep routed pop inflections.
With five albums and three EPs under their belt, Animal Farm is the bands second full-length 2021 release after the well-received Departures dropped in April.
