HIVES INQUIRY SQUAD
Formed in Wisconsin in 2005, Hives Inquiry Squad emerged from a kinship between Gavin Theory and Lucas Dix and their mutual appreciation for funky innovate music and introspective lyricism. The duo progressed quickly by critically challenging each other to perfect and expand themselves as people, as well as hip hop artists. Hives Inquiry Squad began to garner attention with their energetic performances, abstract insight, and unique perspective of their genre. Gavin Theory's gritty electronic infused production, coupled with the pairs lyrical content often dealing with the dichotomy of the natural world in a technological age, has developed them a fanbase extending beyond the traditional hip hop audience.
Recent carpetbaggers to Portland, Hives Inquiry Squad has found a home in the eccentric local music scene, already gaining a diverse following from frequent shows in the area. With the release of Gavin Theory's solo endeavor, Escaping Stasis, due in March, as well as their album Edifice dropping shortly afterwards, Hives Inquiry Squad will undoubtedly continue to impress audiences and stretch the definition of hip hop music.
