The Skinny: Deap Vally is a duo from LA’s San Fernando Valley (thus the name) and will be releasing their debut 7 inch single in the UK on Ark Recordings on July 31st. The a-side to this release “Gonna Make My Own Money” is making waves and can be grabbed for free right below. With rock-hard grit and all-girl soul, 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 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, playing with Soundgarden at Hyde Park in London this Summer, 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.
