Today Lindsey Troy from Deap Vally tells us about the song "Lies" from their debut EP, "Get Deap," which is set to be released next week on April 9th. Here is the story:
Julie got a me delay pedal for Christmas a couple years ago. I locked myself in our rehearsal space for a few hours and played around with my new toy. I came up with the guitar riff for the chorus during those few hours.
I was seething from a romance that had recently crashed and burned. I was in my car on my way to band practice a few days later and I started to come up with the lyrics. I showed the idea to Julie when we got the our rehearsal space and she dug it, so we jammed it out and finished the song together. We had most of the song fleshed out and were just jamming on the music when Julie grabbed the mic and in a smoky Diana Ross speaking voice says "I thought we agreed / you wouldn't have the need to spread your seed / but it's a fact / you broke your contract". It was on.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and watch the video here learn more about the group right here!
