Those Goddamn Hippies stitch together carefully chosen sounds with desperately honest vocals. Mixing acoustic and electronic elements to create a lush melancholic atmosphere for weaving melodies and personal lyrics. At times fragile and at times bold with declarations of hope, British born artist Tom Marsh’s solo project is refreshingly insightful.
The ‘Hippies’ sound explores the area between singer songwriter and electronica. Utilizing synthesizers to translate simple guitar riffs, looping short melodic patterns to create intricate sequences, Tom draws on his rich musical background as part of his inspiration.
After spending almost a decade touring the globe as a drummer, swapping London for a studio in Berlin and finally finding the peace and quite needed to begin writing in Vienna, Tom decided to focus all of his curiosity and energy into one project. “Those Goddamn Hippies are the result of all of my artistic sides. From songwriting, producing, remixing to the bands stage design, the plurality of the name gives me the feeling of freedom I need to create.”
Following their first ever performance in front of over 1,000 people in Berlin, and supporting WhoMadeWho and Ting Tings as part of their tour, Those Goddamn Hippies are ready to release their first EP to the public.
