The Valley Girls gone bad Deap Vally are back with some rip-snorting blues and the heaviest of drums to make your eyes wince and your body quiver as the girls add sex appeal to a sometimes ugly genre.
Making their presence felt with every pounding, jarring release the duo have upped the stakes again with their latest effort ‘Royal Jelly’, which along with the rest of the album was produced by Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, really announces the band back to the stage.
It’s heavy and unrelenting, mixing their thundering drums with a guitar lick that reverberates the Northern hemisphere, it’s filthier than a pig in shit, eating bacon while masturbating to Babe.
With breaks incurred due to pregnancy and a tour with White Lung, the band now seem ready to take on the world and with this kind of nuclear hard hitting they could very well destroy it. Add to that a very cool video which even features model Georgia May Jagger, the band look set to press the red button very soon.
