Our first track of the day of 2021 is the latest offering from Leeds based trio Dead Naked Hippies! ‘Curiosity (Dawn)‘ is a synth-lead track that’s a huge step forward for the band and sees them depart from their standard rock sound heard on previous releases. It’s a driven, danceable track with potent synth riffs and compelling vocals. This release also sees Dead Naked Hippies take on self-production for the first time, having learned everything from scratch during lockdown.
Speaking of the track, front-woman Lucy Jowett has said: “’Curiosity (Dawn)’ is a question of existence and purpose, how life shapes us & we shape it, and reflecting on it as if it were coming to an end. Society is so focused on moving at pace, achieving, doing, proving & sometimes it feels so ingrained into us, that this is the way we should be.”
“The video was captured in one shot – we were set on the idea of capturing a moment, much like a live show. On the day we put aside to film it, the video you see was the first & only full take we captured that day, it felt really special to approach in this way and was definitely a reaction to the lack of live performance in our lives this year.”
