‘Guillotine’ is Dead Naked Hippies’ first track of 2018, and it was worth the wait. The song slices between indolent vocals over hazy guitars and fiery, rollicking choruses to make a lovely little kick of post-punk.
“Guillotine is an exploration of grief” says frontwoman Lucy Jowett. “It’s the fine line between wanting to retaliate to someone who has caused you hurt, versus choosing to cut out the dead weight they have created in your life.”
It mines a similar vein to the music coming out of artists like Dream Wife and such over the past couple of years, but the rawness – both musically and emotionally – means it stands on its own feet and suggests a promising future for the Leeds threepiece.
