This or That: Deap Vally
Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, better known as Deap Vally, are two big haired, fringe adorned, heart-shaped sunglass-wearing rocker chicks straight out of Los Angeles. Lead vocalist and guitarist, Lindsey Troy started out as a solo artist before teaming up with Edwards. The girls met at a knitting class, ironically and have been consummating their love through music (and knitting) ever since.
Drummer, Julie Edwards actually owns a spot in LA called The Little Knittery, although she’s said she wants to be a therapist or a comedian before turning all out rockstar. Their hit single, “Gonna Make My Own Money” preaches the lifestyle of being strong, independent women. Stylewise, they put Penny Lane to shame. Love children at heart, their music breeds positivity and calls on the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll. Festival performances at Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Splendour in the Grass, and Coachella complemented tours in North America and Europe. We sat down with the girls to ask some tough questions about music festivals, crowd surfing and alien takeovers. Click through the list above to get to know them.
