Los Angeles based dirt-rock duo Deap Vally hit up The Grand Social in the middle of June bringing with them a blizzard of grungy riffs and raw lyrical fire.
The band’s two members, guitarist and singer Lindsey Troy and drummer Julie Edwards originally met in a crochet class of all places, and in the intervening years have gone on to tour with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, DIIV, Band of Skulls, and Babes in Toyland to name a few.
That list of music peers gives an excellent hint as to the band’s sound: fuelled by hard rock, but raw like lo-fi punk, with turn-of-the-millennium touchstones like The White Stripes’ White Blood Cells and Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Fever To Tell also being extremely pertinent reference points.
In contrast to the band’s powerhouse musical approach, Troy’s lyrics are unabashedly personal and intimate, giving Deap Vally’s music its distinct character.
