((Deap Vally)) Band Profile and Upcoming Chicago Concerts - Oh My Rockness

How many Valley Girls does it take to screw in a lightbulb while correctly spelling "Deep Valley?" Apparently more than two.

Deap Vally are two Los Angeles valley ladies that play a blues riff 'n beat - so watch them for the changes and try and keep up, ok? This fiery duo is Lindsey Troy (vocals/guitar) and Julie Edwards (drums). Troy's vocal shrieks and growls sound a lot like Karen O. Just throwing that out there. I don't know who Edwards's drumming sounds like. But let's say Phil Collins just for fun.

Anyway, think of Deap Vally as a more aggressive Alabama Shakes (maybe) meets rrrriot girl punk meets the classic distorted riffage of guys like Black Sabbath/Led Zeppelin meets an even angrier Janis Joplin. Oh yeah, meets the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Something like that, anyway.

Deap Vally is pretty good if you're drunk and sweaty and in the mood to get down and dirty and stuff. In closing, my pictorial research suggests that these two really like taking photos of themselves in as little clothing as possible. Maybe that information is relevant. Maybe it's not. I'll leave it up to you.
