“If you wanna be Queen bee / Then you better make honey”
The Who: Deap Vally (Los Angeles, CA)
The What: The last time that we saw Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards aka Deap Vally they were slinging slices of their funky, brazen, sexy and snarling punk rock all over the place at Echo Park Rising. If any two women are well-equipped to call hell on complacency and bullshit, it’s this dynamic duo. The facts speak for themselves: Just see their debut album, Sistrionix, for further. Or watch this new video for their slinky new single, “Royal Jelly,” as it cautions against falling short of one’s potential. Featuring the sheer gorgeousness of fashionista/model Georgia May Jagger, Troy applying deep riffs and reverb and a five-months pregnant Edwards behind the kit, the barefoot badasses are just tipping the iceberg of what’s to come from their sophomore record (produced by Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner) due in 2016. We bet it sounds like honey. Very, very loud honey.
