Sons Of Hippies was conceived high in the mountains of Tennessee amid fellow music lovers at a festival on a 700-acre farm. Their name originated when Brazilian native Jonas Canales and Florida-bred Katherine Kelly probed familial bonds to discover they were, indeed, children of hippy parents.
The duo’s mix of dreamy, melodic psychedelia and shoegaze struck a chord with audiences and their second album, Griffons At The Gates Of Heaven, will be released on July 16th on Cleopatra Records.
To mark the occasion the band are using Noisetrade to give away a free three track EP called Spaceship Ride (click here to get it) that includes the title track from the new album as well as an acoustic version of Mirrorball.
They are also releasing a new single from the record, watch the video for Rose below.
