Profile: Deap Vally

Female duo Deep Vally are Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards. Hailing from South California, they make noisy, raw rock n roll and have exploded onto the London music scene with a bang.

Despite only having been together for about a year, they sound comfortable and at ease, most likely down to the vast experienced racked up between them - Lindsey used to play for The Troys, while Edwards has spent half a decade with Pity Party, as well as drumming for The Ravonettes.

Earlier this week, the band put out a new track, Gonna Make My Own Money, which has seen a whole host of music blogs and new music purveyors swarming and buzzing around it like sweet nectar.

The track is a delicious, lo-fi affair oozing with Sabbath-tinged riffs and agressive vocals from Troy, all topped off with a girl-power, feminist lilt.

Take a listen!

You can also check out a live performance of Baby I Call Hell, below - another grunge-fuelled, riff-heavy sensation:

Their first UK show was in Brighton last week at The Hope, which I imagine was incredibly sweaty and awesome! So, If you like what you hear, you can check out Deap Vally at the following dates:

  • 11th July - The Old Blue Last, London.
  • 13th July - Hard Rock Calling w/ Soundgarden, Iggy Pop & The Mars Volta.
