Premiere: Ghost Wave - "Hippy" MP3


Ghost Wave are a trio of New Zealanders with a name-appropriate knack for surfy rock that deftly toes a darker edge, not to mention just a general knack for unrelentingly catchy riffage: if either of these things sound at all good to you, check out their newest single “Hippy.”

Heavily distorted, chugging guitars don’t mask a simple but smart shimmery riff that sounds like sun glinting off the water, nor those laid-back, day-drunk vocals – we want everything out of our minds too, dude.

Here’s 2012’s invincible lo-fi summer jam, the one that fits the fireworks and the too-fast driving. Turn it up.
