The indie funk band Magic City Hippies has shared a stream for their new track “Body Like A Weapon,” the first single released from recording sessions that took place this past winter. In discussing the track, drummer Pat Howard said, “This track is maybe the side effect of having a few analog synths lying around for the first time. Those sounds inspired this kind of ‘cocaine 80s’ vibe, which is always a fun Miami cliche to play off of, but I think this one got pulled in a few cool new directions for us.”

Lead singer/guitarist Robby Hunter added, “There’s definitely quite an array of sounds and aesthetics, for what it’s worth, there are smooth Marvin Gaye-style 808s, but then there’s also the trunk-shaking trap 808s later on. Chorused-out Frusciante funk guitars become Tom Morello-style beeps and boops. We even got to throw in the infamous Dean Scream at one point.”
