Deap Vally's Exclusive Esquire Playlist

Most Popular

Deap Vally strutted into the rock stratosphere, a two girls bathed in blues and whisky and Californian sunshine. Like the Black Keys, with a fuck-off sexiness. Brilliant.

After thrilling us at Glastonbury, the pair were kind enough to hook Esquire up with their ultimate LA summer playlist. Best paired with a crisp beer, rough denim and these dying days of sunshine.


Deap Vally says: Heavy and creepy and funky.


 

Deap Vally says: Anna has such attitude and totally shreds.  Plus she's Lindsey's sister!


Deap Vally says: This tune is super chilly and smooth, good for a day that's too hot.  And drummer Carla Azar is a hero of ours.
