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. Today sees the release the bands full-length album Departures via Mongrel Records.
“Departures is a collection of songs about the journey we take until the final moment… and questions what is still to come…” – Filthy Hippies
