In life, sure things don’t come around too often. Luckily for us, we’re able to break the news that it will undoubtedly be a “Tribe Summer”. Alternative hip-hop two-piece, Hippie Tribe, is the gravity-defying duo you need in your life. Consisting of blond.bomber (the classically trained pianist who taught himself Bach at age 8!) and dp.thuHippie (who aspires to write, direct and score his own movies), the combo have been turning heads with their addictive, signature sonics. They create a sound all their own as they seamlessly flow through and blend the highest peaks of various genres like Hip-Hop, Pop, R&B and Alt Rock. A sound so undeniable, the multi-instrumentalist tandem know their breakout is right around the corner.
“We feel like we’re in the part of the space program where it’s like 2-weeks ‘til launch. No t-minus countdown clock yet. No space suits on – you might be cutting grass or watching a movie with your shorty – Life is still ‘normal’” says Bomber. “..But, there’s this little whisper growing – you can’t really take a step without noticing it – you know for a fact, in a few weeks, you gon’ be in Space. Space… That’s where we are,” dp.thuH concludes.
To kick things off, the band tapped another highly anticipated emerging hip-hop talent in ACE TRE for the release of ‘Goku’, a face melting, 808-driven slapper. No hook – no catchy bridge – just bars, grit and a “throw water in your face to wake you up” attitude. Similar in energy to the likes of Sheck Wes’ 2018 smash Mo Bamba, and the late XXXTentacion’s breakout hit Look at Me, this just-under-minute-thirty riot will have you “ready to go Super Saiyan” according to blond.bomber. He adds that the listener “should feel like [their] best self listening to this song – headbanging is encouraged!“
