Dead Naked Hippies are thrashing, screaming, art-rock outsiders. The trio, fronted by force-of-nature front woman Lucy Jowett, will lull you in with subtlety before unleashing their take-your-head-off wall of sound.
They have received praise from DIY, BBC 6Music, The Independent, KCRW, Dork, Clash & Metro, and were awarded the first ever Help Musicians UK 'Do it Differently' fund. The band aren't afraid to discuss confrontational topics, speaking about self-love, mental health, gender and many other things in an open and engaging way, both in their music and interviews.
Despite consisting of only three members, they are a force to be reckoned with live with booming drums, huge guitars and Jowett's banshee-like approach hitting hard. They have shared stages with the likes of Dream Wife, DZ Deathrays and Queen Zee as well as playing Leeds Festival, 2Q Festival, Twisterella, Live at Leeds, Stockton Calling and more.

“brutal yet remarkably precise” Clash
"one of Leeds' best up-and-coming bands" DORK
"These guys are coming at you with a wall of sound, all driving guitars and booming percussion, bolstered by enigmatic front-woman Lucy’s powerful vocals." Metro
