Daria & The Hip Drops
Biography

Most frequently compared to Lily Allen, or an unexpected blend of No Doubt colliding with Regina Spektor, Daria & The Hip Drops win over listeners with every performance and recording. The group got their start recording Daria’s first solo album “Calliope” in 2010, and has continued to grow under the name of the full band, Daria & The Hip Drops, consisting of teamwork between singer, steel pannist, and keyboardist Daria Dzurik and producer Graham Robinson, and a collaboration of other artists that provide backing grooves. Although the group has its roots in upbeat indie pop and rock, influences are wide with steel drums and Caribbean influences, heavy funk bass lines, and the occasional electro-synth sample. Artists and bands like Santigold, The Talking Heads, and Toots & The Maytals have present influences in the band’s sound, as well as the music and culture from the southeast region of the United States, from New Orleans to Miami.
