See Deap Vally Go for a Head-Banging, Hip-Popping ‘Walk of Shame’
Los Angeles' first ladies of rock deliver 'Sistrionix' visual
Deap Vally’s brutalist boogie tantrum Sistrionix was SPIN’s album of the week with good reason. That 11-song set stomps and swaggers like vintage bayou boogie, with Lindsay Troy’s thick-as-a-brick blues riffs and Julie Edwards’ monstrous cavewoman beats proving that the dynamic duo can hold up to the hype.” One of its lynchpins is a triumphant little ditty about waking up somewhere unexpected called — what else? — “Walk of Shame.” But rather than embrace the traditional meaning of the familiar phrase Deap Vally turn it into an act of excellence — a sing of a life well-lived. The brand new video above plays with that concept, finding the pair out for a late-night stroll that’s frequently interrupted by wild bouts of head-banging. Oh, and finger-snapping, and hip-wiggling, and leg-popping, and zipper-flipping. Stroll with Deap Vally above, thanks to director Tyler Shields.
