Dumb Posh Hippies – The King Of Kimmage EP


A new EP from “psychy smelly punkers from Dublin.”

Dublin band Dumb Posh Hippies have released their debut EP with the Dublin 6W/12-themed titled The King Of Kimmage EP.

The psych-influenced punk three piece’s debut EP leave an immediate impression with dry lo-fi production and three quick tunes.

The EP is introduced by the opening track ‘D.P.H.’ (I love when a band calls a song after their band name).

“I don’t want to be a part of the scene / but i’d like to be invited to the party,” is how the song starts, before it bursts into fun clean guitar, bass and drums.

Listen to Bandcamp.

The EP was recorded and mixed by Darragh Hansard (Thee UFO) at Orc’s Lair in Dublin, and was launched at the Bello Bar last week with the bands Slightly Disheveled & INGOODFRM on support.

‘Never Ever Sorry Trevor’ features a psych-rock sound familiar to fans of the Osees or King Gizzard and The Lizzard Wizard, while the title track goes for big reverbed riffage.

The band say they write music “writing music “purely for the live experience with enough energy to take your head off,” so it’s just as well they’ve some gigs coming up to expend that energy.
