The inspiration for “Hippies” came from reflecting on the modern era and its added pressures, the frustration that the world is far from at peace and how the majority of us are simply caught up in the mess. An escape to a time where love mattered more than political divides, social unrest and social media “likes” when music brought everyone together. The song takes you on a trip to a past summer romance when the world was your oyster and that invincible belief you could take on anything together. We want to share in the nostalgia, embracing the hope for days where we can live completely carefree and become optimistic for the future of our generation.
Abbie and The Roses are an alternative pop band formed in London in 2018 by vocalist Abbie Rose and guitarist Nick Crowe in collaboration with the finest hand-picked musicians.
The band first burst onto stages with their infectious debut single “All This Time”. Mixed by world-renowned engineer Geoff Swan (Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Kings Of Leon, Charlie XCX, Years & Years), this disarmingly honest break-up tale heads straight to the heart and just won’t let go. Abbie and The Roses’ self-penned and self-produced debut single showcases their expansive sound and deeply personal songwriting, delivering a sharp hit of raw honesty rarely heard in recent years.
Following the success of their first release, the band has been back in the studio working on a number of new songs ready for summer stages. In the meantime, the band gifted their growing fan base with a live acoustic track “I Don’t Wanna Walk” in March 2019, another heartfelt story that draws you in with its intimate sound and frank lyrics.
This is set to be a huge year for the band as they prime to hit UK and US shores with an all-new storming set of soul-stirring songs, with sights set on the stratosphere.
