Kungfu Hippies are back with the new single “Northwoods Boy” . With Brad Ray (vocals/acoustic), Frank Leonovich (vocals/lead guitar) , Chad Whittaker (vocals/bass), Buzz Chopper (keys) , and Geofford Prettner (drums) they have managed to concoct a recipe that is second to none with this new single.
From the very beginning of this song, I was hooked.vAn introduction of strong guitar and drums was very promising and made me excited to hear the rest of the track to follow. When we get to the hook, just as expected, the chorus delivered on par to the build-up. Catchy, jumpy, and toe-tappingly good, it delivered on both an instrumental and vocal level; treating us to lofty guitar riffs, which I can only imagine would send a live audience into a mass of thrashing bodies.
It usually takes a pretty strong pull for me to be excited about a band from the very first play of a song, and this is the first time that I have heard of the work of Kungfu Hippies. I can assure you all that I am very excited to hear more from this group.
I can only imagine that they deliver just as well live as they do recorded, as all that was crossing through my mind throughout playback was how much I would to hear it played from a stage, as part of the sweaty and bouncy crowd that is sure to follow them. I can absolutely guarantee that I will go away and look more into the work of Kungfu Hippies and I urge you to discover their amazing sound too.
