Glastonbury Gold Part 3: Deap Vally
It only took about 30 seconds of one song and I was hooked on these girls. Their song "Walk of Shame" hit me like a powerful pop/rock train and immediately had me searching online to see what their story was and where I could pick up their music.
Playing on one of the more intimate stages last year, blink and you may have missed a performance from one of the more impressive bands at the festival. Formed in Los Angeles in 2011, Julie Edwards (drums/vocals) and Lindsey Troy (guitar/vocals) didn't exactly meet in the most rock n roll setting. Who would have thought that such a raw and explosive band would have been born out of a chance meeting at a crochet class, and yes you did read that right!
Their debut album Sistrionix was released back in June 2013 and was well received, some likened them to a scuzzy crossover of Led Zeppelin and The White Stripes. Not a bad comparison really, especially the Jack White reference as it hits you on the very first track "End Of The World". I would absolutely recommend you give their album a listen but I would also suggest that if you can see them live they would definitely be one not to miss, especially if you can catch them in a smaller venue.
