Yip Yops have gone from gracing the stage at Coachella, Chinatown Summer Nights, and Echo Park Rising to building an organic buzz online.
The Coachella Valley is where YIP YOPS were born and still call home. However, there’s an indefinable and indescribable urge that spurned the duo – frontman Ison Van Winkle and drummer Ross Murakami – to send their own kind of aftershocks through alternative music. The band’s singular sound could’ve been signed to Factory Records in 1981, but feels at home on your favorite Spotify playlist. That’s why the pair achieved the seemingly insurmountable within a few years of crystallizing its lineup (and graduating high school). Counting New Order, The Smiths, and Pink Floyd among myriad influences, their sound tempers layered harmonies over swooning synths, robust accentuated guitars, and hyper-charged beats. Rising out from the area’s monolithic musical shadow, they prove the classic possibilities of musicians jamming in a suburban garage. 2018 sees the duo release more music as they push the single “She” and hit the road once again.
Mikaiah Lei is the brainchild behind Eskimo Kisses, although you might know him from LA based indie rock band THE BOTS. Having toured with Incubus, Deftones, Death From Above 1979, Dead Sara, The Buttertones and more, Mikaiah has made waves in the indie rock music scene. “I’ve been doing a solo act for a little while now called Eskimo Kisses. I perform all sorts of genres under that name and I describe my style as as sorta experimental pop. It’s got elements of indie, noise, rock, folk etc”.
