The Hives Hip Hop Collaborators Like Their Bravado

The Hives

The Hives have collaborated with Timbaland and Pharrell Williams, and singer Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist tells the Los Angeles Times their hip hop collaborators’ ideas about rhythm and stage presence have rubbed off on them. “They like our bravado, that we’re not shy and retiring,” Almqvist said. “And the music is very similar structurally. If you take a Dr. Dre beat and play it twice as fast, you pretty much get a Hives song.” The Fagersta, Sweden band release their fourth full-length album ‘The Black and White Album’, on Tuesday (November 13) on Interscope Records.
