One of our more treasured bands, Deap Vally are teaming up with another nationally treasured band, The Flaming Lips to create a supergroup of sorts and release a new album. Their first single release from that, ‘Hope High Hell’, is our Track of the Day.
The Flaming Lips obviously have a longstanding tradition of collaborations. In the past, have shared collaborative albums with Miley Cyrus, Neon Indian, Stardeath & White Dwarf, and a whole heap of “heady fwends.”
Now, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd have got together with the powerhouse duo of Deap Vally, AKA Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards to form a powerful new supergroup, Deap Lips. They will be releasing a self-titled debut on March 13th via Cooking Viny;.
The lead track of the record is ‘Hope High Hell’ and is a fitting start to their supergroup’s output. While Flaming Lips have an eclectic back-catalogue, Deap Vally’s is tinted with the heavy rock power they’ve always possessed. In this single, those two forces combine to bring you a touching first release.
