South African alternative collective Filthy Hippies, known for their fusion of psychedelic and shoegaze influences, have just released their latest single and accompanying video, 'Dual'. The track is a taste of what fans can expect from their forthcoming album, Share The Pill, set for release on July 5th via Mongrel Records.

Since forming in 2018, Filthy Hippies have been at the forefront of the burgeoning South African psych scene. Their distinct sound, which can be described as a Phil Spector-esque wall of sound merged with deep-rooted pop inflections, has garnered them a loyal following and secured their status as one of the scene's most exciting acts.

Over the years, Filthy Hippies have experienced various personnel changes, evolving into a five-piece lineup that retains the original trio's core. This new configuration brings fresh energy and innovative perspectives to the band's already dynamic sound.

Dual showcases the band's musical growth and creativity, blending intricate guitar riffs, lush melodies, and dreamlike vocals. The single is accompanied by a visually striking video that mirrors the song's otherworldly atmosphere and delivers a mesmerizing viewing experience.

Reflecting on the band's journey, Filthy Hippies have shared stages with notable acts such as the post-punk band Dangerfield during their album launch and have been featured at major events like 2019's Endless Daze Festival. Share The Pill is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated albums in the South African psych scene this year.
