HPKNS (pronounced Hopkins) are a Melbourne Blues // House duo formed in 2015. The duo consist of James Deville (vocals // guitar) & Dave Lovegrove (vocals // bass // percussion). The name pays homage to 1940's blues legend Lightnin' Hopkins whose traditional foot stomping blues forms the basis of HPKNS unique style.
While HPKNS roots lie in traditional blues with offshoots of glam, psychedelica & garage rock, the significant driving force behind the music is the beat which is a product of their love for House // EDM.
