Single Review – Deap Vally – Smile More

The Californian hard rock duo: Deap Vally have announced the release of their second studio album to follow up from their high octane debut Sistrionix with Femejism which is due for a September 16th release. Their new single ‘Smile More’ is evocative of the album title which explains and explores why they are feminists and that they don’t have to answer for it. It is a strong and logical message which the duo have personified wonderfully, making it wholly relatable. Musically, the track is less abrasive and rough edged in its production. It features smoother chord progressions but with some well placed, ringing riffs. A strong and multi-functional return.
