DEAP VALLY – Their ‘Fuck You Anthem’ Makes ME Smile More…

SMILE MORE by DEAP VALLY

DeapVally
Utterly cool female garage blues rock duo DEAP VALLY are finally back. Their sophomore album FEMEJISM produced by Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ sonic maestro Nick Zinner will be out on 16th September. The first single SMILE MORE is described by the Californian duo as a ‘fuck you anthem and sounds as a damn bloody one. “And I am not ashamed of my rage / And I am not ashamed of my age / And I am not ashamed of my sex life / Although I wish it were better” spits agitated frontwoman Lindsey Troy while fueling her I don’t care what you think rant with a crushing blues groove assisted by octopus drummer Julie Edwards‘ hammering force. Honest feminist dynamite! A barbed wire manifesto with guts dripping all over the place! Cant’ wait to seem them play live again (Brussels, 23rd September) and talk more about Flanders’ history…

Everybody’s tryina tell me what to do
Everybody’s tryina tell me what to do
Makes me wanna break some shit and sniff some glue
Everybody’s tryina tell me what to do
Stranger in the bar tells me to smile more
I look at him and I ask, what for?
I am happily un-happy man
And no, I don’t wanna shake your hand

I don’t wanna be a reflection
I’m so bored with this rejection
I don’t wanna be a reflection
I don’t need your direction

And I am not ashamed of my mental state
And I am not ashamed of my body weight
And I am not ashamed of my rage
And I am not ashamed of my age
And I am not ashamed of my sex life
Although I wish it were better
I am not ashamed I am no one’s wife
Although the idea does sound kind of nice

I don’t wanna be a reflection
I’m so bored with this rejection
I don’t wanna be a reflection
I don’t need your direction

All this rejection is bad for my complexion,
Come on now, let’s take this to the next section!

People think they know what kind of girl I am
They take one look, they think they understand
And they’re always surprised when they meet me
Apparently I’m terribly misleading

And yes, I am a feminist
But that isn’t why I started doing this
And sometimes I am full of bitterness
But I am trying to work through this

I don’t wanna be a reflection
I’m so bored with this rejection
I don’t wanna be a reflection
I don’t need your direction
