YIP YOPS has a retro wave sound that blends the underground scene of the 80’s with a raw feeling lost in today’s popular music.
YY’s 2017 release of their debut EP, Eyes, has been described by Chris Aspromonte of Casulin as, "an incredible high energy sound that cannot be easily replicated. This is a blend of genres that is unique to YIP YOPS and cannot be heard anywhere else at the moment." The EP is a diverse collection of the bands early works and represents some fan favorites. Jaded Culture writes, "This is the type of album that will make you either dance along, or sit quietly while you reflect and analyze your life. It’s truly a delicious experience!"
YIP YOPS was founded within earshot of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Songwriter and lead vocalist, Ison Van Winkle co-founded the band with bassist Jacob Gutierrez and drummer Ross Murakami in 2013. Soon after, Mari Brossfield completed the lineup, adding keyboards and songbird vocals. Ison’s low-lit and chilling lyrics puts a spotlight on today’s divided culture and are complimented by the complex and colorful instrumentation. Soundscape magazine writes, “There isn’t a lot of music out there right now that sounds as original as this.”
A top priority for the band is to offer a visually stimulating live performance that paints the story written in the music. YIP YOPS are known for their quirky on-stage fashion and antics as Ison’s performance has been compared to a “mad scientist."
