Deap Vally introduced us to their unapologetic style of rock’n’roll in 2013
debut ‘SISTRIONIX’. LA natives Julie Edwards and Lindsey Troy lit heavy, minimalist blues fires
throughout the US and Europe, both on record and in their legendary live shows. Lindsey Troy’s
sand-and-glue vocals and ferocious riffs rode roughshod over the dynamic explosions of Julie
Edwards’ drumming. After several loops around the world, they decided it was time for a gear
shift inspired by the pair's desire to create their vision on their own terms.
So the two-piece wielded the time they needed to reassess matters, doing short stints as touring
bass players: Lindsey in White Lung and Julie in JJUUJJUU: having a kid, experiencing life
stuff, all while recording critically-acclaimed sophomore album ‘FEMEJISM’ with Yeah Yeah
Yeah’s Nick Zinner producing.
The process of executing album two while still recovering from a major label hangover (they
parted ways with their major label after record 1), found the two feeling less than bright-eyed
and bushy-tailed towards each other. ‘We actually went to couples therapy,’ Lindsey admits.
Enlisting a professional worked wonders, and the two began to see a way forward, and the
vision for their next record began to form.
Their reinvigorated approach is to craft and record songs quickly, catching what falls, and bring
new influences into the process, including artists from some of their favorite groups like
Savages, Warpaint, Flaming Lips, Peaches, KT Tunstall, Eagles of Death Metal, and Mini
Mansions. ‘It’s your classic seven year itch. It was time to bring some other people into the
relationship, heat it up,’ quips Julie.
Seven years in to Deap Vally -- and many more than that in the music biz, Lindsey having been
a failed major label teen pop star, and Julie having been in a favorite local Silverlake band that
operated somewhere below the status of ‘cult’-- their aim now is to engender a sense of
freedom and playfulness in the studio, not be weighed down by self-judgement, pressure to
perform, adherence to established genre, and other neuroses that in the past essentially gave
them mild PTSD.
‘Get Gone’ (label: HundredUp) is the first of many surprise-attack singles the band will release
this year, some of which will be bundled into cohesive collections, some of which will stand on
their own as tasty treats. ‘As much as we are both old school lovers of the LP format, we really
want each track we record to have it’s moment in the sun, instead of any of our babies being
relegated to the obscurity of deap cuts.’
