With a tight 90-minute set infused with a tropical Caribbean feel to it, The Hip Abduction took over Aisle 5, formerly The Five Spot, in the heart of Little Five Points On Wednesday, October 19. This is a band you want to be on the lookout for. Their sound is as eclectic as they come, with a bit of early Jamaican Reggae with a Florida influence, blended nicely together with harmonious melodies that make you want to let go and dance the night away. Part hippy factory and heavy on the percussion, The Hip Abduction is everything you want out of an ensemble band – all heart and soul with an original voice to tell their story, all while embracing the wild human experience. Their music makes you feel like you’re on the beach with waves lapping at your feet as you are sipping on a fruity concoction with a pink umbrella in it. It’s pure bliss.
With an infectiously vibrant narrative, The Hip Abduction played songs off their third full-length studio album, Gold Under The Glow, which included Before We Lose Our Mind, All I Need, Wander and Come Alive, but a fun highlight of the evening’s festivities was when they did an instrumental cover of The Lion Sleeps Tonight and ended on the perfect note with a rendition of Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing.
