      The Hip Abduction

      with Of Good Nature
      Sometimes inspiration strikes from the immersion of living in a far away place. The view of the ocean. The sound of a rainforest at sunrise. The smell of an open-air market. The embrace of the wild human experience. However, maybe the nostalgia for a certain place might be attributed instead to a feeling, or a time, or even a person. Sometimes, inspiration stems from a place that everyone can relate to, but maybe no ones actually been. This is the music of The Hip Abduction, the vibrant St. Petersburg, FL-based collective that formed over a mutual appreciation for West African and early Jamaican reggae/dub music.The Hip Abduction (THA) began through informal jam sessions and quickly coalesced into a sound that attracted national attention. For Gold Under the Glow, the bands third full album released on March 11, 2016, THA engage an indie pop acumen alongside a highly emotive and roots driven sound. Recorded in Nashville, Gold Under the Glow was produced by Dabney Morris (Wild Cub) who is credited with incorporating synth-pop teeth into the bands global foundation and summery vibe. Its a smart blending of world pop and club aesthetics that appeals to both audiences. The Hip Abduction featuring David New (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Powers (bass), Dave Johnson (baritone, tenor sax), Cody Moore (keyboards, sax), Matt Poynter (drums, vocals) and Justino Lee Walker (guitar, vocals, sitar) have shared stages with the likes of Grace Potter, Galactic, The Revivalists, Ziggy Marley, Umphreys McGee, Thievery Corporation, Matisyahu, 311, Galactic, and Moon Taxi and has performed at Shaky Knees, FloydFest, Wanee Music Festival, Suwannee Hulaween, Deep Roots Mountain Revival, Sunfest, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Tropical Heatwave Music Festival, The BIG What? and more. Watch out for more festival plays in 2018 including Red Rocks Amphitheater, California Roots Festival, Blue Plum Festival, Camp Bisco, Duck Creek Log Jam, Camp Deep End and more as well as coast to coast dates.
