Australian New Blues duo HPKNS (James Deville and David Lovegrove), have just released their third single "Amy Spencer Blues".
"Amy Spencer Blues" ties together the riff-driven blues of their first single "Soda Man" and the melodic pop sensibilities of previous release "LA Andy." HPKNS trademark pounding bass heavy beat and grooving guitar lines are prominent throughout , whilst sections of focused vocal harmony stand-out and add an extra dimension rarely seen among other riff based rock."

James and David are from Bayside Melbourne (Jet, British India) and have been writing and performing together for over 10 years. Sending demos back and forth whilst traveling in 2013 and 2014, they ultimately made the decision to quit their full-time careers and follow their passion for music, culminating in their new Blues based project HPKNS.
Following in the footsteps of the foot-stomping style made famous by Lightnin’ Hopkins, John-Lee Hooker and others while incorporating a bass heavy underbelly and their penchant for melody and harmony, HPKNS aim to develop the Blues in their own unique style.
HPKNS previous 2 singles “Soda Man” and "LA Andy" received airplay on MMM’s Homegrown and JJJ's Roots and All as well as numerous positive reviews on Australian and International music blogs such as semplesize.com and blackbullblues.com .
