Deap Vally Debut Single

June 12, 2012

“Think a hippie Karen O fronting Black Sabbath and you’re somewhere in the caustic, blues-riffing ballpark as these Los Angelinos.  A hollerin’, howlin’, hell-raising duo”.  NME

HEAR Gonna Make My Own Money here:

Bringing rock-hard grit and all-girl soul from the San Fernando Valley, Deap Vally is made up of the howl of Lindsey Troy and the rhythm of Julie Edwards.  Together, the duo break blues down to its simplest, most fundamental form: beat, melody, and meaning, while their scorching live shows are fast becoming the stuff of legend.  Deap Vally will release their debut single, Gonna Make My Own Money, on Ark Recordings on July 30th, and make their UK Live debut this summer.

Deap Vally first met at a needlework class – yes, really – last year. Bonding over their crochet hooks with a love of the blues, first demos and videos of the girls’ live shows have been cropping up online with increasing frequency over the past few months, Filter Magazine invited the band to perform at their Coachella party, and they’ve even caught the ears of one Josh Homme, whose Eagles of Death Metal invited the girls to open for them in LA.

Deap Vally will head to the UK for the first time this summer, with a show at London’s Old Blue Last, Brighton’s The Hope and festival dates in Hyde Park, Latitude, Reading and Leeds.  Before this, Los Angeles gets a chance to catch them in June. Dates are:

8th      JUNE             LOS ANGELES, The Smell

11th                            BRIGHTON, “Communion Presents” @ The Hope

11th   JULY             LONDON, Old Blue Last

13th                            LONDON, Hyde Park (with Soundgarden and The Stooges)

14th                            LATITUDE FESTIVAL


25th                            LEEDS FESTIVAL
