If youre playing in Miami, youve got to get bodies moving.Over the years, the city has been home to Latin pop royalty and ascendant Soundcloud rappers; played host to bass-booming EDM fests and the golden years of disco legends. Its also why Miamis latest genre-defying dynamos, Magic City Hippies, are primed to take their infectious indie-funk around the world.Were always out to entertain people, promises singer-guitarist Robby Hunter. Miami is a nightlife city, he adds with a tinge of excitement. People are oriented towards staying out all night. Anything you do has to make them dance.As Magic City Hippies approach the Aug. 16 release of their standout debut album Modern Animal -- a mosaic of poolside grooves and lingering, sun-kissed melodies -- the trios origin story remains central to its crowd-pleasing mission statement.First it was just Hunter -- hustling the Miami streets, plugging his guitar and looping pedals into whatever power source he could find. Sometimes crowds formed; sometimes others joined in. On a good night, hed maybe earn a hundred bucks. The next stop was Barracuda Bar & Grill, a popular Coconut Grove dive where Hunter became a regular performer and forged a sublime chemistry with the rest of Magic City Hippies present-day lineup: guitarist John Coughlin and drummer-producer Pat Howard. They began playing 90s rock and hip-hop covers to weekend warriors and college crowd regulars, before live-testing their first original tracks in 2011. There was something special when we played those sets, Howard remembers. Wed go for four hours, not even rehearsing. Then Robby came to the table with some originals. The easygoing psych-rap nugget Corazon, released when they were still called Robby Hunter Band, shot to No. 1 on the Hype Machine in 2013; after shifting to Magic City Hippies, Fanfare, the swaggering opening track off 2015s Hippie Castle EP, topped Spotifys Global Viral 50 chart, thanks to a burgeoning online fanbase.
