Deap Vally - Marriage
“MARRIAGE is the sound of Deap Vally tapping back into what makes them tick, and lays the groundwork for their most exciting era yet” – DIY (4/5)
Deap Vally, the Los Angeles-based duo comprising Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, are celebrating the release of their magnificent third LP, out 11/19 via Cooking Vinyl, with the release of a new video for Tsunami, taken from the LP. The release follows latest single, Perfuction, and the brilliant Magic Medicine, which is sitting pretty on the BBC Radio 6 Music Playlist this week.
MARRIAGE follows the success of Deap Vally’s acclaimed 2013 debut, Sistrionix, and 2016’s Femejism, as well as the band’s 2020 LP with Flaming Lips as Deap Lips, a hook-up which fired up the band’s passion for collaboration, a passion that has continued through the band’s recent EPs on songs with artists including Peaches, KT Tunstall, Jennie Vee (Eagles of Death Metal), Jamie Hince (The Kills), Savages, Warpaint and more. From these incredible collaborative projects, the seeds of MARRIAGE were sown.
Say Deap Vally of the new album, “Being in a band is like being in a marriage: sometimes it’s magical, sometimes it’s unbearably challenging. To reinvigorate that marriage we’ve made album three a genre-bending experiment with new collaborators and instrumentation that push the limits of what has previously defined us. MARRIAGE is our musical Rumspringa, if you will. We’re breaking free of the rigid creative constraints within which we previously existed (two members, two instruments, two voices). Writing with the calibre of musicians that we did on this record – like jennylee, KT Tunstall, Peaches, and Jennie Vee – was an unforgettable experience, and we’re so happy to have the result of our creative rebirth eternalised in MARRIAGE.”
