Fans of the band and viewers of the Hippies’ previous videos (“Rose,” “Spaceship Ride”) are well acquainted with the band’s penchant for intensely creative, humorous and eye-catching videos. That streak continues with the release of their newest video for the slow burner “Mirrorball,” the opening shot of which includes a pair of bikini clad, hula hooping hotties in Nixon and Reagan masks...and then things get weird. Featuring vocalist/guitarist Katherine Kelly dressed as a black hooded terrorist, shaving the head of her young male captive, as well as shots of the entire band indulging in copious amounts of cocaine like the drug fueled mania of the ‘70s & ‘80s never went away, the “Mirrorball” video shocks the senses and subverts expectations in a way that will have you both laughing and gaping in slack jawed wonder.
Conceived by the spiritual union of 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. Their 2013 release Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven launched the band to new heights, bringing them heaps of international praise such as the British zine Vive Le Rock declaring “Psychedelia just got motherfucking sexy,” and Classic Rock Radio Dot EU proclaiming “Griffons starts off well and then keeps getting better...it begs to be experienced time and time again” while Penny Black Music says “This is a powerful, well crafted and produced slab of modern alt rock.”
