Hell yeah y’all it’s the Yip Yops fresh from the Coachella valley. No seriously, this isn’t some hipster joke. This is real life.
The Coachella Valley is where YIP YOPS were born and still call home; but you aren’t going to find bubblegum pop and misappropriated outfits with this band because frankly, they are better than that—and don’t need anything but the music they come with.
