HIPS is a collaboration between LA-based artists Drew Denny and Christina Gaillard. The multi-instrumentalists have played in a handful of bands together and formed HIPS as an all-female vehicle with an emphasis on innovative dance beats, heavy bass melodies, and lush vocal harmonies. Gaillard produces all recordings from her home in Highland Park, LA, with Denny writing lyrics and melodies. The result is a throwback to early freestyle dance music drowned in a sea of 90’s R&B production. Unlike most bands performing within the beat-based dance genre, HIPS play all parts live.
